EXPLORING NYC AND CONQUERING MY FEAR OF RUNNING

On Instagram you’ll catch me boxing, lifting weights or doing pilates. Even though I love an adventure, when it comes to working out, I have to be honest–running isn’t part of my routine. I love the theory of running, the idea of being able to just go–where you want, when you want–but when it comes to actually getting into stride, I get nervous.

Spotify recently launched their “Spotify Running” feature which allows their users to choose a music genre and then matches the tempo with their pace. It helps people think less about their pace and more about the music–allowing them to zone out completely. Since this seemed perfect for a runner like me (someone who over thinks the act of running), I decided to partner with Spotify to give it a try.

I designed my intention to be two-fold–not only would I get over my fear of running, but I would also be able to discover my favorite NYC neighborhoods in a new way. I mapped out a route, tracing all the spots that I don’t frequent enough

Thankfully the whole experience is super user-friendly–find #SpotifyRunning by tapping the “Running” button on the home screen. You then select your favorite genre and get going!
