A Glorious Mix, Of The Running Persuasion.

Usually when I run, I use Pandora. Its not bad, but there are some pretty random and/or hideous songs that come on and just kill my vibe. Over the course of the last few evenings, I compiled a playlist that I could toss on while running, with music I actually like. 

Now, with that said, I chose a variety of songs. 103, to be exact. There was no real method to my madness. The first few songs that made it to the list were songs I thought of immediately. If I listened to it, and I didn't think it was upbeat enough, I chose another song by the artist. Sometimes, I would look at the suggested artists, chosen by Spotify, and pick songs from those artists. 

I made published the playlist for others to see and subscribe to. Even if you just peruse my song selections to create your own running playlist, or you check out artists that you've never heard of before.

Here it is, in all its glory: run like forrest

Like I said, its not an award-winning list, but it serves its purpose - upbeat tunes to run to. Some artists I don't usually listen to, but when I came across certain songs, they would definitely work on a running mix. 

In closing, I leave you with this picture of your favorite new blogger. Its a clip from a video that was shot last week. Thats all I can say, for now. But trust me, its going to be great. If you know Zack Jones, he is the genius behind this master plan. 

Clip from the best film of 2012, ha!
Happy trails to you,
