23 Favorite Running Songs

I’m rolling up on my one year anniversary of running. Woohoo! Kinda funny that I would remember an anniversary like that. I mean, who remembers the first day they inflicted torture upon themselves?

However, it’s a date I’ll never forget since I bought my first pair of running shoes the day before my birthday.

The longer I run, the more miles I log, which means the more I listen to my music. No one wants to listen to the same songs over and over, no matter how much you love them. Because I promise if you listen to the same songs for 15 miles, pretty soon you’re going to be pressing skip more often than not, and then the dreaded delete button.

Don’t do that!

Keep things interesting and check out some more of my favorite running songs!
