Favorite music or podcasts while running

Do you prefer to listen to music (or podcasts?!) while running?  If so, what is your go-to music or podcast genre to get you in the groove? 

At REI, we believe a life outdoors is a life well-lived.

I love to listen to audible books while running, it really makes the time flow. Only road running though. Trails I don’t want to be distracted. 


I like to switch it up - If I know I'm running a longer distance, I'll listen to some true crime podcasts that hook me into the story and my run feels less long. Sometimes if I'm running more for speed or interval training, I'll listen to Nike Run Club's playlists on Spotify. Their Speed Run playlist pumps me up every time!
