    I have recently tried running without tunes. Basically started when I thought the race was going to have better sound than it did, and another time my phone got wet and ruined, and multiple times where I just forgot to grab the Yurbuds (or where they were).

     

    I got quite a charge out of running with music. Some music would really kick my butt into action. Its been about 3 weeks, and Im also enjoying focusing on nature, my breathing, the sound of my footfalls and a little less technology to worry about.

     

    One race I had my comedy mix in with my running music. Started LAUGHING in the middle of a race. (I dont know how to FFW songs while running) so I could only turn down the volume and run in the quiet for about 8 minutes. (out of a 1/4 Marathon).

     

    I wish all well with their music.

                        I actually don't have very many particular songs that stand out for me for running.  I'm a bit of an EDM (electronic dance music) junkie and generally just listen to mixes from DJs I like.  It's incredible how a mix can progress and how much it can affect me when running and will profoundly affect my run (I know I'm not alone in this).  If I'm having difficulty in a run I'll try to picture myself at a rave and imagine that I'm dancing rather than running.  It works well for me Smile

                         

                        A couple standalone tracks that I've known to really keep me going are:

                         

                        Infected Mushroom  - Frog Machine

                        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfFr63NUWSQ

                         

                        Justice - We Are Your Friends (DJ Isaac Remix)

                        https://soundcloud.com/dj_isaac/isaac-we-are-your-friends-2012

                         

                        Mixes are what I listen to for the most part though:

                         

                        Also, for those who don't know, EDM mixes are essentially what DJs do live.  They mix multiple songs together on the fly seamlessly literally without missing a beat.

                              Cool.

                               

                              If the beat and lyrics are right, I can run to it.  Smile

                               

                              Edited to add: Sometimes I don't know if I'm running or dancing.

                              Run the mile you are in.

                                Good policy.
