Headphones or No Headphones
Should we be running with music?
To wear headphones while you run or to not? This is the debate that's been going back and forth the past 20 years and still exists today. Personally, I rarely use headphones. Connecting with your surroundings and listening to your breathing and foot strike are more important than trying to forget the fire burning in my lungs. Headphones are a must for many people as it is relaxing and motivating. I get that, really I do. However, I would suggest to not wear them every once and awhile.

How do you enjoy your runs? Hard core dedicated to your headphones or are your ears free to the world?
