The perfect running music can be HARD to find.
If you're reading this, you're probably one of those outstanding humans whose go-to exercise is a long run. Or, hey, maybe you're like me and want to make your 5km run a bit less...extreme. In any case, excellent running music, like good exercise shoes and workout attire, is a must-have for getting through any run (or speed walk, no judgement here).
I thought it was important to write this piece because I don’t believe in doing music in halves. Motivating lyrics to lift your spirits, a fast tempo to go with your heartbeat or footsteps - when you've got a no-skips playlist on your hands, you're likely to lose track of time and before you know it, your goal is knocked out of the park.
Finding a good "zone-out world, I'm running" song is difficult enough, but creating a playlist full of them? It is no easy task, I assure you. Putting up a playlist capable of keeping you company on the last few kilometres takes a lot of research, experimentation, and vibe-checking. This is where Chatty steps in. Don't you like it when someone else does the job for you? You can follow our Spotify to add this playlist directly to your following, or read below for the beats and bangers to add accordingly.
