Music to my ears

Since I started running I haven’t gone a single run without music playing on my iPhone (using Spotify). I love getting inspired and motivated during my runs and music is a great way to keep pushing through when it starts getting hard out there.

Unfortunately I’ve been bad with finding new running music and I find myself constantly looking (listening) around to find new tunes to bring along on my runs. Maybe there’s others out there who like me needs inspiration when it comes to running music? So I’m thinking – why not share my lists and maybe you can give me yours?

I made a list getting prepared for my first race, the Rain Forest Runs 10K in August, and it’s still hanging in there, with some modifications.
