Prepping for a long run this weekend? Our upbeat, high-powered playlist will definitely get you motivated. These are some of my absolute favorite songs to run to — and trust me, I’ve had plenty of trial and error.

When I first started running, I thought I could listen to any ol’ playlist, but alas, nothing really kept me motivated. Until I discovered “Indian Summer” by Jai Wolf, and everything changed. I discovered the exact type of music that gets me mentally amped to push through miles, even when my lungs are burning and my feet are cramping. If you love indie electronic or electro-pop, you’ll love this list that includes Flume, CHVRCHES, Odesza, Jai Wolf, and more.

Whether you’re setting out for a long run or doing a race and crushing a PR, this mix has all the energy you’ll need to get through miles upon miles.
