Does music make a difference when you run?

Our earphones are our best friends when we run! But is it absolutely necessary to listen to music when we run? Apparently not!

Studies conducted say that leaving that iPod behind, and listening to your feet hit the ground makes you more in tune with your body. You concentrate on your breathing and your footwork, and appreciate the sport more. It also keeps you aware of your surroundings, including dogs and traffic and increases your level of alertness.

After reading all about this, I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately though, I feel awkward and seem to have gotten overly conscious of my surroundings, though I don’t need to be! Help?
