Runner Fuel (#ThinkKit Day 19)

#ThinkKit's 19th Day:

Insert Theme Music Here

Strike up the band – what was the soundtrack to your year? Was it the music you listened to the most? A certain song that kept reappearing, or worse...that you couldn't get away from? Or maybe it wasn't music at all – maybe a podcast, voice, performance, or significant sound played over-and-over. Whatever you heard: we're all ears!

This year, I've been obsessed with putting together a great running playlist. It really helps to motivate me when I'm running miles and miles all on my own. Here are my highlights. They're a mix of music I've always loved, throwbacks to the 90's, and songs I would never listen to if it weren't for running. It has a little bit of amped up pop, some riot grrrl stuff, and some metal. I stream everything through Spotify so I can mix it up and try new songs all the time.

Let me know in the comments what I should add! What gets your blood flowing and your feet moving?

  1. I see a surprising lack of Missy Elliot.


Tell me something good.
