Running is an exercise that requires minimal equipment and gear therefore, running is easily accessible for many people. Research has shown performance benefits when music is used while running such as increased cadence (steps per minute), increased speed, and decrease in perceived exertion. Since music is easily accessible during a run (e.g., smartphone or smartwatch), one can utilize the technology in these smart devices to track specific aspects of their run. Accelerometers, GPS, heart rate sensors, gyroscopes, and barometers can be utilized to track speed, distance, physical exertion, steps, and cadence. Software developers can take advantage of these features in smart devices to create applications that combine performance features with music that could potentially increase running performance. This literature review describes the use of Applied Behavior Analysis in sports and running, reviews studies that used music to increase exercise and running performance, and discusses studies that combined music and technology to increase running performance. Considerations for future research using ABA, music, technology, and running are also discussed.
