Hit the Pavement: A Playlist for Cool Runnings
3.16.12

You’re either a runner or you’re not.  True or False?

Surprise – FALSE!

We were literally built to run.  To flee from danger, to snag a meal, to find our soulmates – the universe engineered our bodies to put one foot in front of the other and make a break for it.  Now that we’re out of the stone ages, we have come to associate running with athleticism – as well as a sometimes chore.  However, if you shift your mindset and just RUN, there is no telling how far or how long you will go – or what revelations you’ll come to along the way.  Sometimes, the best runs come when you put a song on loop and just go, with no rhyme or reason attached to the movement.  Whether you are a speed demon or need a little extra push, here are some favorite songs to propel you forward.

No caveman motives required.

Here’s my playlist that really gets me going when I’m ready to run. I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Speaking of running, I just read Haruki Murakami’s book What I Talk About When I Talk About Running and it really got me in the mood for a nice long run. I absorb all the inspiration I can get. :)
