A new season means new tunes for my running playlist, and I’m bursting with excitement to share some of my favorite new jams with you all!
As I mentioned back in January, one of my goals for 2016 was to explore more new music, specifically so that I could continually update my running playlists instead of listening to the same batch of songs over and over and over again.
