  1. Interesting read. Funnily, I used to run with music but since the Yoga took over (and I like my mellow music with my Yoga practice) I prefer running without to be able to hear and feel my breath more, to not be distracted from how I feel during the run etc. I just like being aware of things now and music may take away from that. Having said that, back in the days the right tune would propel me forward.

I'd love to hear your thoughts...
