Looking for some tunes to get you pumped for your run? Never fear, Sparkle Athletic is here and we’ve got you covered!
Next up is a running playlist from @sas_rubel. Music is everything to Steff. Growing up she was in the band and performed in productions through school. She has been known to sing in the middle of a store or even break out in song halfway through a race (WOAHHHHHH, we’re halfway there…). Oh, and then there’s dancing. Always awful dancing, even during a training run. Running and music go hand-in-hand for Steff. Sometimes, she will go running just to get some time to listen to her music.
Steff loves 90’s music. All of it. Her running playlist is pretty reflective of this. On days when she’s just ready to pound the pavement, this is her go-to playlist. She thinks it is the perfect description of her and her personality.

We may be a little bias, but we think the song choices Steff made will help kick your running playlist up a notch. No matter your distance or speed, these songs are just the tunes to get your feet moving as you head out the door. We all know how music can effect our moods and even our workouts. As runners we often turn to music for motivation and, at times, to take our mind off of the miles. Having the perfect song at the right moment, whether it be when you are conquering a long run or tackling a fast interval on the treadmill, can be the difference between ending your run on a high note or simply finishing flat.
The #teamsparkle community is such an amazing resource that we want to hear from YOU to find out what you are listening to, what is helping you to rock your runs and what is a must on every runner’s playlist. The best songs have the ability to keep us going mile after mile and we want to be a resource for one another so that we can run longer, run faster, but also run happy. Some songs may be old, some songs may be new, some songs may be trendy, some songs may be underground, but as long as the beats are pumping and inspiring us to put one foot in front of the other, then it is music to our ears!
If you’d like to be featured on an upcoming Sparkle Athletic “Running Playlist“ post, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear what songs made your cut and which ones we should add to our ever-growing playlist.
**Please remember to use caution when listening to music while running, especially if you are pounding the pavement outdoors. A few suggestions would be to run with one earbud out or to do your best to keep the volume low enough so you can clearly hear your surroundings. It may be hard, especially when you want to rock out to your favorite track, but safety first!**
