Looking for some tunes to get you pumped for your run? Never fear, Sparkle Athletic is here and we’ve got you covered!
First up is a running playlist from @krissycakes13. Since Krissy started running six years ago, she’s been fortunate enough to run a huge variety of distances – from 5K to 50K – and has enjoyed the goal-making, training, and everything in between. As a runner and new mom, it can be a challenge to find the time to schedule in a run – but it’s always worth it! Thankfully for Krissy, she received a treadmill as a Christmas gift, so she can throw down some miles even when the weather is not so great outside, and music is a must for her when running indoors!
Krissy’s playlist is continually evolving, so although these songs might not make her “race day” final cut (she loves having her iPod with her, even as a back up if she doesn’t feel like listening while racing), their messages, beats, or choruses are sure to be bouncing around in her head. You might even hear her sing a tune or two out loud. 😉

We may be a little bias, but we think the song choices Krissy made will definitely help us all to go the extra mile. 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 affect 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!**
