1. Keep it up tempo.


2. Sing. Instrumentals don’t cut it for runners.


3. Acknowledge the claps, nods, waves and shouts from the runners as best you can. They’re the ones doing the work.


4. Do not play a waltz. Do not play Take Five.


5. Learn to stretch the songs.


6. Take in the energy and be glad you can add your own to the event.
