It's National Running Day. There's no better time to discuss awesome metal tunes for running. I've found that classic thrash and metalcore work best for me. When it comes to hill training I need something really aggressive... when I'm doing a long run I need something that will distract me. I quite enjoy running and the sense of accomplishment when I'm done. That said, I'm not good at the sport: I'm slow. I'm determined, I prod along. I work hard. I remain slow. I've decided to come to peace with that and just embrace my abilities. It's okay to be a back of the pack runner. I do races, put on my metal and mind my own business. Some of the songs I listen to the most when running are Motley Crue's "Wild Side," Asking Alexandria's "The Final Episode" and especially I See Stars' "Electric Forrest."
What tunes do you love for running... or exercise in general?
Oh, and here's a video for National Running Day. Bret Michaels even found his way into a running promo!
