My Half Marathon Playlist

Half Marathon #3 is five days away and I'm ready.

My training was extremely different this time around but I am okay with that. I'm ready to go out and have some fun but also push myself. I know I can hit my goal if I follow my race day plan. Something that always helps me run is MUSIC. I don't always need it (heck, I set my 5K PR without music or a watch!) but it's nice to have on my longer distances.

So, here's my playlist for Sunday! I hope you find a song or two that you enjoy!

HALF MARATHON PLAYLIST:

1. MILEY CYRUS We Can't Stop I listened to this a lot while training for NYC. I hear the song and immediately want to run.
2. KATY PERRY Roar
3. EMINEM The Monster You'll see Eminem a lot on here. His songs always make me run faster.
4. VICTORIA DUFFIELD Shut Up & Dance She recently opened up for BSB and I thought her music was catchy and up beat.
5. IGGY AZALEA Fancy My new favourite song!
6. JAY Z & ALICIA KEYS Empire State of Mind Also listened to this a lot while training for NYC. It brings back great memories!
7. ONE DIRECTION Best Song Ever
8. PHARRELL WILLIAMS Happy Makes me smile every time I listen to it! London claps his hands when it comes on so I'm sure it'll help me push through if I'm having a tough time.
9. JASON DERULO It Girl
10. BACKSTREET BOYS Love Somebody They performed a more "up beat" version of this song at their concert but I like the original as well so it made the cut.
11. KRISTIN CHENOWETH Popular I fell in love with this show in NYC and the soundtrack is awesome!
12. JUSTIN BIEBER Boyfriend
13. EMINEM Love The Way You Lie
14. SALT-N-PEPA Push It This song reminds me of Court. Another good memory song :)
15. KRISTIN CHENOWETH & IDINA MENZEL Defying Gravity
16. JASON DERULO Talk Dirty
17. EMINEM 'Till I Collapse A great song to motivate you and push you through an tough moments during a race!
18. BEYONCE Run The World
19. VICTORIA DUFFIELD Break My Heart
20. EMINEM Headlights Not very upbeat but I love this song, so it made the cut.
21. KATY PERRY Birthday
22. ARIANA GRANDE Problem I only discovered this song last night but I like it! Will be nice to have something I haven't listened to a dozen times.
23. CALVIN HARRIS Summer This song is ALWAYS on the radio. It's catchy as heck!
24. PITBULL Wild Wild Love Also on the radio a lot and very catchy!

Any other songs I should add? I'm a top 40's girl...

  2. I have many of the same songs! I have always started every race with the song Poker Face :) I think Chad told me I had over 3 hours of music lol, but I always skip songs if I am not feeling them at the moment.
