My Playlist

My Playlist

The ever important playlist. Something we runners love to discuss. With a half marathon a few days away, these are the songs I have chosen to keep me on pace. It is comprised of mostly rock and hip hop, but I sneak in some easy listening here and there. It’s funny, but sometimes I run faster when a slow song is playing. It makes me imagine a high-speed action scene being played in slow motion. Ah, forget it, you don’t care why I pick the songs, you just want to see my list… well, here it is:

And there you have it… as you know it is an ever-changing list, but I did highlight the songs that really get me going when I need it. It is a fairly lengthy playlist that suits me for long and short runs. I keep it on shuffle and often skip through several songs if it doesn’t suit my tempo at a given point (hence the length) however, I may trim some more songs down before this weekend to keep it to the best of the best, but there is the playlist as it stands now.

Let me know what you think and of course, I am open to suggestions so fire away.
