Motivate with Music: My Favorite Playlist Right Now

Before Zooma Napa Valley, I decided to do something I hadn’t done in a while: make a new playlist.

I wanted a playlist that would keep me excited through the whole race. I didn’t focus on my usual dance pop tunes, but threw in some fun indie and rock stuff. It worked! I love this playlist. I’ve been listening to it for runs, cross training, and just walking home from work. I love it all.

While I’ve occasionally run without music, I love running with music because the miles just tick by, while I’m singing and dancing along to the tunes (both probably have an impact on my pace 😛).

So, what’s in this playlist you ask? Here you go, my friends, here you go.

So anyone racing this weekend (and if you’re running Rock n Roll Chicago, give me a shout out!) get moving on adding these to your playlist. It is guaranteed to motivate! *

*And by guarantee, I mean, you’ll probably like it. No guarantees for anything are actually being made. I am not responsible for any charges associated with downloading these songs.

What’s on your playlist right now?
What’s you’re typical music genre for running?
Next race?

  1. great list. Some of those songs I don’t know so I’ll have to check them out.
    I really love my rockmyrun mixes, they are great cause I don’t have to worry about what song goes with what.
    I’ll listen to anything, all depends on my mood.
    My next race isn’t until August. A local 5km. Should be a good turn out.
