You know what’s beautiful? That thanks for Under Armour and FitFluential, I’ve got a bunch of new workout gear on its way to my mailbox right now.

But you know what’s EVEN MORE beautiful? The fact that over the next few weeks, together, we’re all going to set goals, push and encourage each other to achieve them, and all along the way, define “What’s Beautiful” on our own terms..

April 2013 Running Playlist

 

playlistgraphicNEW

I have done so much running this month. I randomly decided to run a half-marathon three weeks ago, and now I’m continuing to keep up with that level of training, because the weather is getting nice and nice why not just keep running, right? So, consequently I’ve been listening to a lot of music. Some really good music and some really bad music.

For example, Taylor Swift’s song, “22” is so bad. That is a bad, bad song. Some might say it is an insult to music. But for running (and also general dancing around like a 5-year-old) it’s perfect. The same goes for any song performed by pre-pubescent Disney Channel stars. So, so bad, but extra, ultra motivating while running. Why is that? Someone do an experiment and reveal these secrets of the brain to me.

This month (like many previous month’s playlists) my playlist is a varying potpourri of artists and genres. The top 12 songs I’ve been running to over the past 30 days range from obscure, failed Disney stars all the way to the great Led Zeppelin. Do with it what you will. Hopefully you’ll press play and have a great run!
