Running: 10 Songs To Add To Your July Playlist - Music To Run To @mileposts

I didn’t fall in love with running that day, in fact it confirmed in my head that runners are a crazy breed. I would NEVER ever add a marathon to my life bucket list, I told myself. When my mom finished just over the 5 hour mark, I thought YEP, never doing this. When my mom was barely able to step up the curb on the way to dinner, it again confirmed, nope never want to become a runner. To be able to return to the city where I first decided that I didn’t want to be a runner, as a runner and finisher of 31 marathons feels extra special. Life is a crazy ride. Don’t give up on something because it may be hard, hard may be just what you need.

If you are the type that likes to run with music here are this month’s top 10 songs from RunHundred!

The artists behind this month’s top workout tunes could easily pass for the lineup of a great, summer music festival. Kicking off the day, you’d find upstarts like Shawn Mendes and crossover favorites like Tegan & Sara. Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood could headline the country stage. Meanwhile, club acts like Sigala and The Chainsmokers supply beats in the dance tent.

Other noteworthy tracks this month include a Coldplay remix from Seeb (who turned Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” into an unlikely hit). Adele makes an appearance with any unusually jaunty cut from her most recent album. Finally, Elle King turns up with a track from the Ghostbusters reboot. If any of these options strikes your fancy, here’s the full top 10 list—according to the votes logged on workout music site Run Hundred.

Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood – The Fighter – 132 BPM

Shawn Mendes – Treat You Better – 83 BPM

Tegan & Sara – Stop Desire – 159 BPM

Adele – Send My Love (To Your New Lover) – 82 BPM

Pitbull & Enrique Iglesias – Messin’ Around – 80 BPM

Sigala, John Newman & Nile Rodgers – Give Me Your Love (Cedric Gervais Remix) – 126 BPM

Coldplay – Hymn for the Weekend (Seeb Remix) – 102 BPM

Elle King – Good Girls – 88 BPM

The Chainsmokers & Daya – Don’t Let Me Down (Hardwell & Sephyx) – 151 BPM
