For this weeks’ Tuesday on the Run, we are linking up to look into our music selection while we hit the trail, road, ‘mill, etc.
Ever since I got my Garmin, I have not relied on my phone to provide me with running stats – and since I wasn’t using it for that purpose, I started listening to the music less as well! Don’t get me wrong, music is a great resource for me to keep the running beat so I can keep pace, but I have found myself more comfortable listening to everything around me… And I am less likely to get hit by a car or another runner because I didn’t hear them coming…
I almost always listen to music or a podcast when I am running on a treadmill, but when I am outside, I would rather listen to the world J
I have a couple go to playlists on my Spotify app that I listen to when I am feeling up for music.
Early morning run – “Sunrise Run” – this is a nice, upbeat, calming list
Long run – “8-Minute Mile” (not that it would happen any time soon!) – this is a great upbeat, kick butt, keep pace (for me) playlist
For this week’s running update, I’m linking up with Patty of My No-Guilt Life, Marcia of Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and Erika of MCM Mama Runs for Tuesday’s on the Run.

I agree with you on just wanting to listen to the world sometimes. Thanks so much for linking up!
“Nature” or “human nature” is the best soundtrack most days 🙂
Love your playlist. I wish I could connect to the world more. I will have to try that with shorter runs in the future and see how it goes!
Running without music helps me father my thoughts and brainstorm EVERYTHING 🙂
Thanks for sharing your list! I very seldom run with music – I live in an urban area so feel safer without.
I feel safer without the tunes too!
