Ruby Aldridge's Ultimate Running Playlist
While Ruby Aldridge trained for the NYC marathon last November, she spent her weeks prior logging major miles— most recently clocking 16+ miles from the Upper East Side of Manhattan to Coney Island, Brooklyn. Impressive, right? The perseverance for such athletic feats requires some serious plant-rich fuel and theme music, so we asked Ruby about her playlist. As a musician, we were begging to snag what's blasting in her earbuds as she treks the streets. The vibe is hardcore, electric, and certainly move-inducing.
"When I first started running I really tried to run without music and use it as a way to clear my head. Now on these longer runs, I find using music as a tool is really helpful," Ruby says. "Plus, it's fun to pretend you're in some kind of epic music video while a song is blasting in your headphones and you're running through the city. I still run without music if that's what the day is asking for, but these are some songs that push me through to the other side."
