The Perfect 60-Minute Running Playlist

We got an expert to help us formulate the best playlist to keep you focused on your run

By: Melissa Romero

We’ve got another workout playlist for you courtesy of Grant Hill, fitness trainer and founder of My Bootcamp. Hill chose 13 songs for a 60-minute running playlist to get you through those hills, sprints, and cool down.

“You obviously have to love what you are listening to, or you’ll find yourself distracted, fumbling with your iPhone instead of focusing on your run,” says Hill, who has produced music for the Real World, the Hills, and Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

When it comes to choosing songs for a perfect running playlist, Hill says to go with tunes that are long and have a steady, driving beat. “If you can sync up your pace precisely with the beat, you’ll feel a huge endorphin rush.”
