There’s nothing better than going for an outdoor run in the fall. It’s cleansing; and marveling at colorful leaves might even help you glide uphill on your route. Fall is my last hoorah for outdoor exercise. Thanks a lot, winter. I have major respect for people whose committment to outdoor running is seasonless. I’m inside cheering them on with a cup of green tea and a buttery scone.
I usually sweat in some variation of the above, but I’m not here to tell you what to wear when you exercise. Find something breathable and comfortable for you – and don’t pay full price for anything. Okay, you might need to splurge on quality sneakers.
Getting dressed is the easy part. To get through a workout, you need some fun music and a touch of will-power! You can doooo it! Here’s a fun playlist to keep you energized:
Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, WHAM!
You’ve Got the Love, Florence + The Machine: I belt this one out. Sorry, neighborhood.
Roar, Katy Perry
Sweetness, Jimmy Eat World: It reminds me of being young. Remember that?!
Chasing Pavements, Adele
There is a Light that Never Goes Out, The Smiths
Til the World Ends, Britney Spears: Every girl needs a little Britney on her playlist.
Sydney (I’ll Come Running), Brett Dennen
