  • No music- I like to have all my senses intact- I often run in traffic or in isolated canyons-

  • I have an iPod 'jogging mix' which is all up-tempo songs that help me maintain a rhythym... I put them on 'shuffle' so that I get some variety. It's a few hours of music so I don't go through it all in one exercise session. I like running to music... it makes it feel more like 'me time' and less of a chore.

  • I like music most of the time for my runs. It really depends on where I'm running- if I can basically check out, I have music, and I keep I on low so I can still hear people around me. I like Pink, Kesha, Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, Britney Spears and a few others for running. Just had a good run listening to OneRepublic. It is nice taking a break from music and just hearing the sounds of my feet and breath and of my surroundings. We have enough safe places to run here, away from major traffic, so that's not generally a big concern for me.

  • I can't not listen to music I have tried but I don't run as far or as long. IDK its just boring to me. I usually listen to rock or rap. I agree it does feel like me time, Freela.

    @stitchintime. Not to sound like a complete Bword, but the title of this was "For people who run" so next time please don't respond.

  • I run with no music. Usually I'm running with my double jogger and two kids, I like to hear everything around me.

  • When I'm outside, especially running in the street I don't listen to music I like to be able to hear what's going on around me. When I run on the treadmill I usually like hip hop or upbeat dance. Funny because I don't enjoy it any other time LOL.
