The pounding the pavement, concrete, trail, or treadmill under my feet. As runners, we all have a memory of these sounds and can hear them vividly…
The sound of cars whooshing by (sometimes closer than we are comfortable with).
The sound of other runners “on your left” or passing you in the opposite direction – a brief “good morning” acknowledged in passing.
The sounds of nature – locust buzzing, crickets chirping, birds singing cows mooing, roosters calling, animals scurrying away from the road (!!), trees rustling in the breeze.
The sound of pumping music to keep up your pace, intriguing audio books or podcasts to give you something to think about, or calming tunes to keep your HR low and steady.
These are a few of the sounds of running I experience every run…
With typical “ear bud” headphones, all but one of these sounds is blocked out – you may only WANT to hear your music/book/podcasts, but this is not a safe option when there is so much more going on around us!
