Fun Run Challenge – Update Your Running Playlist
You can get the Fun Run Challenge Calendar printable here.
Studies have shown that listening to music can help with running performance [The Sports Journal]. And one recent study specifically looked into if listening to a runner’s preferred music helped them pace themselves during a short workout [NCBI].
Before you update your running playlist – please be sure you’re keeping safety top of mind. You need to be able to hear what’s going on around you at all times. If you run with headphones – consider using ones that go around your ear & don’t cover your ears – so you can listen to music and your surroundings. If you can’t afford that – try just wearing one ear bud so the other ear is open to listening to your surroundings. Check out the inks below for top runner headphone suggestions.

Shop Running headphones here:
AfterShockz Bone Conduction Headphones – they don’t cover your ears so you can hear what’s going on around you. This is a good safety choice if you want to listen to music, books or podcasts while running and stay aware of your surroundings.
Apple Air Pods – You can use these with Android phones too. These are my favorite for using on a walk if I want to talk on the phone. The mic is a little better than the Samsung Galaxy buds (below). But these are harder to use if you want to pause or skip a song.
Samsung Galaxy Buds – I think these are the easiest wireless headphones to use while running, walking or working out. It’s easy to pause songs, audio books or podcasts. Also – these ear buds make it easy to play again and skip songs.
