Warm Up and Cool Down Playlist

Fitness Articles Director Julia Savacool is preparing to run the NYC Marathon. Here are her favorite warm-up and cool-down songs.

These are the warm-up and cool-down tunes I listen to for my long runs. I listen to faster stuff in the middle of the run, but I find it's helpful to have motivating but chill songs for the first few miles and last two, to remind me not to push it too hard at first and then burnout, and also to help me relax toward the end.
