I have a running soundtrack!

I decided a month ago that after I move to Amsterdam I’m going to start running more. While I would prefer to play tennis, running is an easier box to check.  Tennis is at minimum a two person sport and I know one tennis player in Amsterdam, me. I did bring my racquet, just in case.

So how’s it going? Well, tomorrow marks my second week here and I haven’t started running yet (unless you count running to Central Station in Rotterdam to catch the hourly train to Amsterdam).  I’ve had a bunch of excuses: works been crazy, the weather hasn’t cooperated and – the lamest excuse and actually biggest deterrent – I stream my usual playlist and my data plan won’t allow this. Lamest excuse ever but I’m not a runner. Music is the only thing that gets me through it.

Well today, one of my project ends. The sun is kind of shining. AND I found a playlist! It’s a little lower bpm than I would prefer but let’s keep it real here, I’m using the term “running” very loosely at this point. It’s more of a jog, huff, walk, enjoy the scenery, snap a few pictures, jog again style of running. Any other running playlists I should download?

The playlist is courtesy of Disco Delicious (a great blog to follow btw), can be downloaded here and features these tracks:
