Leap Day Playlist

For Leap Day, I plan to start my bonus day with a long run to enjoy the many beautiful running paths in and around Madison. My personal favorite is the Lake Monona path. You can run all the way around Lake Monona, and it offers up so many gorgeous views of the city. A good soundtrack is a must for me on any long run, so I’ve put together a special Leap day playlist for this bonus day run—a playlist of 29 tunes with the word “day” in the title. Happy Trails!
