I can go either way when it comes to music on a run. Some days I want to enjoy the sounds of nature, the rhythm of my breathe, the slap of my shoes…….other days I want to rock out to something completely inappropriate that I could In-No-Way-Listen-To-While-In-The-Car-With-Montana!
The winter here in Michigan has also been a bit chilly and snowy for anyone who has been hibernating and so the tredmill has seen a few more miles, than even I would like….and so the need for peppy music seems to be at an all time high. This has got me searching the I Tunes and Shazam (a music identifying app) for new and keep-me-running-tunes!
I thought I would share some of my favorites, and look forward to ‘hearing’ some of yours!
