This week, I’m bringing you songs to help you find your rhythm. What does that mean? Well, sometimes running can feel like your feet are all over the place…and then that ONE SONG comes on. The one that has a great and prominent beat that before you know it, your feet are moving in exact time to the music. This week’s selection of music is all about those songs.
The first song on this list always makes me think of the group of ladies I trained with for my first half marathon. I was our designated DJ and would play music through my phone speaker for us. Whenever this song came on, within a few seconds all of our feet were landing at the exact same time. I love how music can bring back so many memories…even running ones!
