Let’s be honest – nothing motivates us more while running, than music…
The right playlist can quite literally work wonders… as soon as we press “play” we find our pace feels quicker, our steps lighter, and there’s a definite “energy” that wasn’t there before.
Unfortunately, that “perfect” playlist can sometimes be a bit elusive. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We’ve teamed up with the fabulous people at RockMyRun to create our very own “Sparkle Power Pump” mix. It’s 60 minutes of rocking girl power, that’s sure to get your heart pumping, blood flowing, & empower you, all at the same time. & Yes – we’ve included all of your favorites including BeyoncÃƒ©, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and even Aretha Franklin. So get ready to hit play, and run your heart out.
If you haven’t used RockMyRun before, you will thank us for introducing you. RockMyRun is a smartphone app that provides awesome running (& workout) music and mixes. We know – you’ve already got a dozen playlists on your phone – but can they be personalized based on your steps per minute, heart rate or ideal cadence ensuring that you always hear the right music, at the right time, at the right tempo?! RockMyRun can!
Ready to listen to our ultimate girl power playlist? Follow these steps to get YOUR free Sparkle Power Pump mix:
1. Open or download the free RockMyRun app on your smartphone.
2. Create an account (also free), or log into to your existing account.
3. Go to Redeem Code in the menu.
4. Enter code: SPARKLE (expires 12/31/16)
5. Find the Sparkle Power Pump mix (which has already been magically added to your “Favorites”), and you’re ready to run.
By the way, in addition to the free Sparkle Power Pump mix, RockMyRun is giving everyone who uses the code SPARKLE a free month of “Rockstar” status too! This means you can access all the amazing “paid” features of RockMyRun for an entire month (including ad-free listening, unlimited song skips, and the ability to match your music to your heartbeat or cadence). Once your free trial ends, your account will automatically revert back to the free version, which provides unlimited streaming of music mixes that are 30 minutes or less. But don’t worry, even after your trial ends, your Sparkle Power Pump mix will STILL be available. How awesome is that?!
After you’ve listened to Sparkle Power Pump (a few dozen times), make sure to check out RockMyRun’s other mixes & playlists. Don’t forget – you can sort by beats per minute, lyrics, and genre on the app, so you can dial in your perfect tunes and pace.
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 only one ear bud, or keep the volume of your music 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!
