“You’ve Got This” Running Playlist – @wonderfullykara
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 @wonderfullykara. Kara loves running to music, her current running playlist has over 11 hours of music! She often will listen to her playlist while getting ready to get herself pumped up, especially on those days when she is lacking the motivation to get out the front door and run. Her rules for a great running playlist are a good beat/cadence, lyrics she can get lost in, and an eclectic blend to keep her on her toes.

We may be a little biased, but we think the song choices Kara made will help us all remember that we can do anything we put our minds to. 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!

**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!**
