 A note on what I typically listen to while running (not on race day): During my weeks of training I realized that music can make a big difference in how fast I end up running. I had the most success with Spotify Pace Stations that you can create directly from the Nike Run Club App. I typically did 8'30" to 9' Pace stations in Pop genre. These were great for getting me going in the beginning but were hit-or-miss depending on whether I knew/liked the songs during long runs so I wanted to make my own custom list for the race. I have to say putting the time to make my own list really paid off on race day because every time one of my favorite songs came on it really got me going!  

What are some of your favorite songs to listen to during a long run?
