Austin’s new head of membership curates the soundtrack to your next jog
By Darren Griffin
Let me set the stage: You're running through downtown Austin before sunrise as delivery trucks are stocking supplies, traffic is increasing, and shops are opening for service. Or you're running along the town lake trail, water peeking through the trees just before the morning light hits the lake.
No matter the backdrop, running is how I centre myself. And every one of these songs create a sense of relaxation. The blend of hip-hop, soul, funk, and jazz helps me tap into the energy that propels me forward – not just on my run, but throughout my entire day.
