Summer 2019 Running Playlist

The past two weekends, I have had the privilege of running my long runs along side my good friend, Nancy. Nancy is a 60 year old kick-$$ runner, but to help me reach my desired splits, she rode her bike and kept me company (and held my water and nutrition).

All these songs make me RUN and DANCE and SMILE.
