Humans are not machines; we always get tired, but our spirits can keep us going, like songs do. While people often debate whether to choose morning or night runs, based on whether they want to have breakfast or late-night snacks, it's always better to go out and exercise than to lie at home immobile. Even if you've eaten quite a bit, as long as you can burn it off, it's a good approach. Persistence is especially important. We've interviewed many fitness gurus and asked them how they keep up with running. Many of their answers repeated the same thing: listening to music.
Below, we share some rhythmic songs to power your long-distance running dream!
