The Ultimate runDisney Playlist

Nothing gets me going on a run like a good beat – but when you’re out there hitting the pavement every day, the songs get stale fast. End result? I have a LOT of running playlists and am always looking for new stuff to get me going.

As such….today kicks off a series of Music Mondays where I share out themed playlist ideas to mix things up. 

First up is no surprise: runDisney!! Not going to lie. Just how much I miss these races these days hit me hard when I was putting this together. Like so many of you, all I can imagine when I hear many of these songs is running down Main Street or around World Showcase, or turning that final corner in Future World.

So whether you’re new to runDisney or want to bring a little of the courses home during this time, consider this my gift to you.

Stuff that’s on my essentials list and really puts me in a runDisney course mindset is in bold. Some versions – like Miley’s Part of Your World – are picked for having more driving beats that the originals.

Again you can grab it on Spotify RIGHT HERE. I’ll be adding new running playlists every week to keep our long runs from getting stale, so give me a follow over there to keep up!!
