Whether you’re running outside or just hitting the treadmill, good music can often make the difference between a rave run and a blown goal. That’s why we’re putting together 90-minute playlists each month chock-full of songs with enough of a beat to keep you moving.


I don’t know about you, but I could use a vacation. We’re halfway through the year, the summer is heating up, and I don’t have a pool. Not to mention, I finished my Runner’s World Summer Run Streak and need to celebrate running 36 days in a row with a little trip somewhere.

But, we as runners know that there are really two types of vacations: runcations, which are trips planned around the exciting new runs you’re going to be able to do; and non-running vacations, during which you’ll have to squeeze in a few runs around other activities, such as vineyard tours, art museums, and bungee jumping. With runcations, sticking to your training schedule or fitting in fun runs is easy because that’s literally the purpose of the trip. You’re running a marathon in a fun new city. You’re out in the mountains trail running. You’re copying the most popular routes on Strava. But for vacations scheduled around other festivities—like a bachelorette party, a few days at Disney, or eating 500 baguettes—it can be tricky to find time to go for a run.

To give you a little added jolt of motivation, I’ve crafted a vacation-themed running playlist to get you in the mood. Whether you’re traveling to run, a runner traveling, or just a runner who wishes they could be traveling, this is a fun, upbeat playlist perfect for summer. Maybe if you’re just now trying to make plans for that late-summer vacay, this will give you some destination inspiration. Want to get “Married in Vegas?” Head to “Budapest?” Take a “Midnight Train to Georgia?” Or maybe you just need a “Holiday” or a day trip “Downtown?” This is your summer to “Party (and run) in the U.S.A.” or “Everywhere,” so whether you’re traveling by plane, train, automobile, or around your block in your running shoes, here’s a playlist to get you moving.
