There’s nothing quite like listening to a good song to help you power up a hill or to encourage you to hit top speed during the final 400-meter repeat of your workout. Additionally, if you are having a stressful day, there’s nothing like a good playlist—combined with a dose of running induced endorphins—to help you break out of your funk or inspire you to find a solution to your problem.
For those of you who have fond memories of the 90’s: This playlist is for you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
