Hi, I love music and sometimes my biggest enjoyment from running comes when listening to the right song and the right running moment come together to really lift your spirits during a run. It just feels magical sometimes to me - as I said, I love music!
Today I ran for the first time in ages (see yesterday's post) and the key moment for me was when they played this song - it's a regular song in my local parkrun warmup and hearing it again after many months not running (surrounded by almost 500 others, all different ages, genders, shapes, colours and sizes, warming up and ready to run, waving their arms like crazy people in the air, in sync) got me a bit choked up, to be honest. I suppose it's a personal, you-had-to-be-there kind of moment, but I wanted to share it anyway. It's not really the song specifically, just what I associate it with.
Hopefully you can imagine it is a great warm up/running song, very motivational!
Key lyrics for me are:
"Understand that it's days like these
When the world is so hard to please
In you, my heart has found a home" (re:running)
And the chorus in general: "We are more....TOGETHER!" (re: running community!)
Another favourite is the last song of the running on the Week 9 Laura C25K Podcast (trumpets, anyone?) Also Taylor Swift 1989 Album which is what I used to listen to when I first began running!
I have a Spotify playlist dedicated to my running.
What is/are your favourite running song(s)?
