What is a running playlist?
Besides the fact that it’s music that you listen to on your run, you could also think about it as the soundtrack for your run, just like the soundtrack for a movie.
Now what if we take this concept one step further and actually run with a real soundtrack?!
Running can get boring at times, even with great music. But what if your run becomes a movie starring you?
With the right soundtrack every run could be a different story
- You could be a washed up runner, about to be kicked off the team, but given one last chance for the run of your life.
- You could be a strapping young law student escaping rogue government agents who want to kill you because you discovered a dark secret (can you tell I just watched the Pelican brief:)
- Or, you could be a hunter running through a primitive jungle chasing your prey or Is it chasing you?
I did a quick Internet search and found a lot of interesting resources for great soundtrack music but one really stood out. The site is called jewel beat, and it has hundreds if not thousands of actual soundtracks that you can get for free or for very cheap. It’s even searchable by theme, so if you want motivational music or suspenseful music or whatever, you can find it easily.
Now I have a soundtrack running playlist on my iPhone and every run can be a different movie.
I recently ran to the running playlist below, and I have to say, it’s a very interesting experience to run with a movie playing in your head. I especially liked the final track which made me imagine running to the finish line and the crowds cheering my victory…
