running. hate it. i can think of 10,000 things i would rather be doing. but! if i can just get myself out that door, i’m never sorry i’ve done it. there are a lot of reasons i run (or fast walk) but the most important reason for me is mental clarity. i feel so much lighter and happier after a couple of miles and a good sweat.

my little running crew, joanie and my sister lacey and I meet up every so often and run it out. it’s easier to find motivation with a crew, than just by yourself. joanie likes to tell us, as we run, all of the positive things running is doing for our bodies, it’s pretty cheesy but actually works to distract your mind.

something we’ve been using lately (because as much fun as it is to talk to each other while working out, it’s too hard to breathe, talk and run at the same time) so we will talk during warm up and then all use the , which is actually very cool and super simple. to use it you select “running” from the side bar, click a playlist, start running and it chooses music that co-insides with your pace, (can be running or walking!). so if you start out running 10 minute miles and want to speed up for the last mile, the music will change so that the beat matches your stride which is seriously amazing because music is half of my motivation when i run.

we use exclusively around the office for work jams, i use it in my car, for all my parties…it’s the best. so i’m happy they added this cool workout feature.

they also created original running beats, they don’t have lyrics but they are just straight music that you can also run to, i’m particularly fond of the “burn” one if you want to .

what do you run for? my main motivation is mental clarity, but i’d love to hear what gets you out the door. and if you already use the , or happen to check it out let me know below what your favorite playlists and genres are, i’m always looking to mix it up!

    Carissa says:

    Will run for pasta. And French bread. And butter. And lasagna.

    Also, anxiety control. I can channel all that pent up anxiety and stress from the day into each step. The less of all that I go to bed with, the less likely I am to have a panic attack the next day.

    I will run for being outside! Lately my favorite playlist on Spotify is josh radnor solid gold.

Not all are the best songs for running or working out, but it’s a great way to discover new artists.

    adrienne says:

    Will run for better sleep at night!

    Laurel says:

    oh man, love this. i run for EVERYTHING. i’m a small biz owner, and running keeps me sane. it’s me time, it’s meditative, it keeps me healthy, it helps to spark new ideas, it gives me the energy to wear every single hat, and it makes me feel free. i usually don’t listen to music while i run because there’s a very real possibility of running (literally! ha) into something that could eat me. (i live in montana.) i love spotify in the studio though, i listen non-stop while i work!

    I just discovered Spotify’s “Daily Lift” playlist about two days ago and immediately added it to my sidebar. Love it. Some common, some unique, but all awesome!

    Also, I just “discovered” running about a week and a half ago, meaning that I started a beginner’s running weekly workout schedule. I’m actually really enjoying it! It allows me to slowly build up my cardio instead of killing myself and becoming demotivated. So:

    Will run for the feeling of strength and endurance.

    Its nice to know I CAN when I HAVEN’T for so long (or ever). 🙂

    Sammie Ellwood says:

    I’m seconding someone here, but WILL RUN FOR PIZZA! Oh, pizza, I’ll love you forever.

    Also, I love the feeling of breaking little PRs/achieving time goals while running. I’m slow and out of shape, but that one time I dipped below 30 minutes for a 5k, I felt like king of the world. Baby steps, people!

    I am totally with you on this. I am actually in a very big rut right now & could really use some motivation to get healthy again. I recently told my husband that I’d like to get a Spotify premium membership to help get me in gear once we have the funds, but as time passes it just doesn’t look like it’s in our budget right now… so this is coming at the best time for me! Crossing my fingers so hard! My favorite Spotify playlist is one I created myself called “Cozy + Quiet” with a bunch of slower/moodier songs on it. Totally not the right fit for running or working out, but I love listening to it. I have been wanting to create a workout playlist specifically though! Top 40 songs are my guilty pleasure & great for running to.

    Will run for being able to fit into EVERYTHING in my closet!
