The three Rs: Running, Writing and Rock music. They are my life's passions. If I can run, write and listen to music, I'm in my happy place.
I grew up on '90s alternative rock music so it holds a special place in my heart. I heard Smashing Pumpkins on the classic rock station and realized that I am old now. That age thing doesn't keep me from the music I love or going to the concerts of my favorite artists, I just usually wake up the next day in worse shape than after a half marathon.
Today I wanted to give you some ideas of alternative rock songs to spice up your running playlist. They may not be new songs, but some of them may be new to you. Sprinkle of these in and see if the beats push you across the finish line a little bit faster.
I resisted the urge to make this an all-Jack-White-all-the-time playlist, which is often the playlist in my ears. Check out these ten alternative rock songs to spice up your running playlist. Do you know these songs? These artists? They are among my favorites for running and for life.
I added my song selections to a Spotify playlist so you can check them out for yourself. Do you have any suggestions of songs for my playlist? Will you add any of these to your running playlist? Anyone else out there a Jack White fanatic like me?
