Running Playlist: Christmas Edition

I don't know about you but this time of year I love to run at dark when people have their Christmas lights on, and that's best done while listening to Christmas music of course. This playlist is different from my others in that I don't judge Christmas music in as strict of a way as I do my any season running music. I'll listen to most any Christmas song while I'm running as long as it's not too too slow. How many fast paced Christmas songs do you know anyway?

  1. I love that these are not just the traditional ones you hear on the radio but they are contemporary versions! She & Him creates such beautiful music, and I am excited to check out the others as well! :)

    1. Thanks for the comment, Julia. Yeah, I like the traditional songs, but get kind of tired of them over and over.
