With the Color Run on Saturday, I asked Tony to share his running playlist with you today!
If there is a universal unifier amongst humans, I’ve found it to be music. That’s something my dad was a firm believer of and preached to us. Really, think about it. If you’re sad, there’s nothing quite like finding that perfect song to soothe your feelings. When you’re mad you rage and head bang to the hard stuff. When you’re beginning to fall for that special someone there’s always a song that can capture the feeling of butterflies in your tummy you get when they’re around. Music is a universal unifier because we all have feelings, and music speaks to them.
This is why my wonderful wife asked me to contribute with a guest post. She knows this is a topic I’m very passionate about and I couldn’t be happier to help.
In stark contrast of my upbringing, Cindy did not grow up in a home where music was played much if at all. She loves music now but she’s not one to look it up or search it out. My jaw dropped when I inquired what she listened to on her runs and her reply was “Oh, I listen to my podcast.”
“WHAT? You mean you don’t have a playlist you listen to??”
“No, I get bored with the songs.”
“You’re not listening to the right ones then….You need my running playlist, like yesterday”
After her run that day she was ecstatic about the results!
So whatever it is you do, jog, walk, intervals, any sort of workout, do yourself a favor and give this playlist a try. That extra motivation is incredible when the sun is kicking your butt, and the pavement is threatening to eat you.
This is my personal recommendation for your next workout.
