Running Playlist (And More)

I have been getting into running a lot recently. It's one of my 101 in 1001 goals to run a half-marathon (zero percent chance of that happening), but I made it a 2018 goal to run a 5k (and then if that's accomplished before June... a 10k). I used to listen to podcasts while running, but as I've been starting to run longer (and slower) I've been really craving music to listen to that matches the beat of my run.

Enter: Spotify running genre! I run really slow (focusing on distance, not speed!), but I thought it'd be fun to share some of the songs that are on my running playlist.

7/11 - Beyonce
No Hands - Waka Flocka Flame feat. Roscoe Dash and Wale
Drag Me Down - One Direction
As Long As You Love Me - Justin Bieber, Big Sean
Flawless Remix - Beyonce, Nicki Minaj
Somebody Told Me - The Killers
Mr. Jones - Counting Crows
All of the Lights - Kanye West
Good Girls - 5 Seconds of Summer
Timebomb - Tove Lo
Schemin' Up - Drake

 Some of the other songs that I love to listen to while working out are:

God's Plan - Drake
Wolves - Selena Gomez
Tip Toe - Jason Derulo
Champion - Carrie Underwood
Girl on Fire - Alicia Keys
Fight Song - Rachel Platten
Touch the Sky - Kanye WestLove Myself - Hailee Steinfeld
Strut - Cheetah Girls
Finesse - Bruno Mars, Cardi B
