Rapper’s Delight! Train Like the Elite With This 1-Hour Running Playlist

If you love rap music and are serious about running, this playlist is the best of both worlds. When distance-running coach Jack Daniels analyzed the stride of a number of elite runners, he learned that they almost all took 180 steps per minute, which helps take the bounce off your stride and can help prevent injury and keep you energized. Instead of having to count your steps, we’ve taken all the guesswork out of the equation with this mix! Each song included in this hour-long playlist is 90 BPM ¡ª the perfect pace to help you keep in the 180 step-per-minute range.
