Hang Me Up to Dry – Cold War Kids

The base in this old-school Cold War Kids tune is perfect for getting you into a good rhythm on your next run. It’s also a good reminder for what you should do with your shirt after a summer run.

Superstition – Stevie Ray Vaughan

When you have the chance to put SVR on your playlist you do it. Especially when you have the chance to share the song on Friday the 13th!

Halle Berry – Lord Buffalo

Austin’s own Lord Buffalo released this single from their recently released album, Tohu Wa Bohu. It’s gritty and the energy it gives will make you grind when you need it most during your next run.

bad guy – Billie Eilish

You want energy? Eilish delivers with bad guy. We wouldn’t be mad if you just put this song on repeat for the duration of your run. Just don’t be surprised if you stop running begin dancing!

WHAT’S GOOD – Tyler, The Creator

Tyler, The Creator pushes boundaries. That’s what makes him and his music so enthralling, you never know what you’re going to get! WHAT’S GOOD is perfect for that next speed workout.

New Sensation – INXS

Runners of all abilities have experienced the runner’s high. It’s an amazing sensation, especially after you cross a finish line! Push yourself, change your goals, find a new finish line, and experience a new sens-a-tion!

Dirty Laundry – Don Henley

What’s one byproduct of running that no runner enjoys? Laundry. Pro tip: listen to this song on your recovery run or while you’re washing all your dirty running clothes!

Break on Through (To the Other Side) – The Doors

If you time this song just right, it’ll push you through a tough time during your run. Get over that hump, get in your groove, and crush the rest of your run. All you have to do is break on through to the other side!

Entrance Song – The Black Angels

We don’t know about you, but we like to have certain songs lined up that play right before we begin running. Similar to a baseball player walking to the batter’s box, this song by Austin’s own The Black Angels will get you ready for your run.

300 M.P.H. Torrential Outpour Blues – The White Stripes

Does your next workout call for intervals? Changing speeds can be difficult on a run, especially if you’re in the zone. But interval training is beneficial. And much easier when you add this back-and-forth tune from The White Stripes.

Utilize this March running playlist update before you take off for your next run. These 10 songs can pump you up, allow you to catch your breath, or help you focus on the warm-up/cool-down. However you incorporate music, just make sure you can still hear your surroundings. It’s important to know what’s going on around you! Is there something you do that we didn’t list?

Sexy Back – Justin Timberlake feat. Timbaland

This is an absolute classic. No questions about it. If you stop running for a minute and start dancing, that’s okay. Just remember, you’re the one bringing sexy back!

Figure It Out – Royal Blood

Stuck in a training rut? Add this song to your playlist, take off on your run, and the electric guitar will help you figure it out!

You May Be Right – Billy Joel

Billy Joel has tons of hits, but we chose this tune because this is what long distance runners say when non-long distance runners claim they’re crazy.

Pearl Cadillac – Gary Clark Jr.

This slow, relaxing jam is ideal for the cool down portion of your long run. Plus, it’s our opportunity to ask Gary Clark Jr. if we can use his Pearl Cadillac as our lead vehicle. He’s from Austin too so you know we’ll let him drive!

Lyla – Big Red Machine

This collaboration between Aaron Dessner (The National) and Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) provides a steady tempo. Stay locked into your pace when this song comes on!

Good Times and Bad – Shiny Ribs

Playlists that have this tune from Austin’s own Shiny Ribs are scientifically proven to have more good runs than bad!

Texas Sun – Leon Bridges and Khruangbin

Let’s keep the Texas musician train rolling with this collaboration from Fort Worth’s Leon Bridges and Houston’s Khruangbin! You’ll enjoy the rise of the Texas sun at the start of the Austin Marathon.

Fire – Black Pumas

Keep your training on track and Sunday, February 16th, will be smooth sailing! Pro tip: we’re contemplating adding the entire Grammy-nominated album from Austin’s own Black Pumas to our playlist. It’s that good!

 Little Black Submarines – The Black Keys

If you need a jolt of energy add this jam to your playlist and wait two minutes. Use that time as your warm-up. Then prepare to crank up the intensity!

Rise To The Sun – Alabama Shakes

The lyrics of this song alone warrant a spot on this playlist. Wake up, remember your goals, and attack the day. Plus, Alabama Shakes are legit!
