Half Marathon Playlist

Running Shoes

If you want to become the best runner you can be, start now. Don't spend the rest of your life wondering if you can do it. (Priscilla Welch)

For the last three months, I have been in search of fun pump-up songs. Through my half marathon training, I collected upbeat pop tunes and dirty hip hop jams. The night before my big run I sat down for one last time, perfecting the order and making sure I didn't have any songs I would want to skip.

My training and resolve to achieve my goal kept me going, but listening to this playlist kept a smile on my face. In fact, one of my friends who came out to cheer said he saw me rocking out at one point during the race. I am sure that was a sight!

If you are a runner who likes having a rockin' work out playlist, or if you want to shake your booty & whip your hair back 'n forth, I'm sure you will love this mix as much as I do!
