04 Jan half marathon music playlist

Did I mention I’m running a half marathon in less than two weeks? Hmmm…well, that might be because I’ve been in denial.

Alas, it’s true. And I feel mostly prepared. I’ve been training, though not as rigorously as I did in my 20s when I raced a lot. I’m also not as competitive as I was in my 20s, so it’s all good. 🙂

With the help of some friends, I assembled a playlist that should take me through the whole race (just over 2 hours at my usual pace). My only criteria for selecting songs was that each song had to have a strong, steady beat and make me feel good or energize me in some way (physically, emotionally). I love the power of music.

If you’re on iTunes, you can search for “The Daily B’s 13.1” playlist and download any or all of the songs. (I don’t get any sort of compensation.)

Do you see any of your favorites on this list? Anything you would add or delete?

    i’m also running a half-marathon this year, in march. these are some of my favorite running songs:
    fever ray – when i grow up
    matchbox 20 – how far we’ve come
    taylor swift – you belong with me
    tv on the radio – wolf like me

    good luck with your training!
