Review: Rock My Run

I live in a very rural area in New England. Now even though it was deemed one of the best small towns in New Hampshire, I would never run on the roads and use earbuds to listen to music. Instead I save my music for indoor workouts or blast the volume from an armband.


I first heard about RockMyRun after running the Rock 'n Roll Providence Half Marathon. It was one of the goodies I found in the swag bag. I used my free download credits right away and fell in love with the mixes. Here are a few of my favorites:


I love that you can choose music by the beats per minute. I really started using the RockMyRun mixes consistently when I was training for Reach the Beach and the ZOOMA Cape Cod Half Marathon. I knew I would be running solo and needed a way to maintain my pace. Lately I have been using the mixes more during interval treadmill runs or walking workouts to keep me entertained. 


Do you have a favorite playlist?

I have not received any compensation for writing this post. I just really like RockMyRun and they were generous enough to donate prizes to the Chilly Challenge that I am hosting on this blog.

  2. I love Rock My Run! I have several mixes from them but I've been out of running commission so I haven't gotten to use them (mostly walking for your challenge). I love the non-stop flow of music in the mixes!

  3. Rock my Run is awesome - I have a ton of mixes downloaded, but I always listen to Quicken My Pulse during a race - it's only a 30 min mix so it restarts on the longer races - but it seriously pumps me up EVERY time!

  4. I've never used Rock My Run. I don't listen to music when I run outside but use Pandora for my indoor workouts. Checking them out now!

  7. Sometimes I listen to them when I do walking workouts on the treadmill. Makes the walking go by faster ;)
