In The Mix

For me, music goes hand in hand with my running. As much as I would love to run the Napa Valley Marathon as I think it would be an amazing experience, I had to veto it because they do not allow headphones on their course.

If anyone was to ever see my actual playlist, they would think I was insane. I have so many different types of music I listen to and for entirely different reasons. Certain songs remind me of significant people in my life and the memories we have shared together. When my playlist in on shuffle, it infuses my runs with happy thoughts and good vibes.

I have found certain artists to be awesome during my long runs. Some of the names you will absolutely know and others perhaps not. It is my hope you will see an artist you haven’t listened to before and will check them out. If you already listen to these artists, cool! We probably have lots more in common. Do you have any artists for me to listen to? I’m always open to new music.

A special thank you to Daniel, Guillermo, Gus, Ken, Tomas and Uriel.
