Tunes Thursday – Marathon Edition

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that I’ve been training for a marathon for these past 5 months. Race day is Sunday, and despite a few pending injuries (UPDATE – I have an XRay appt tomorrow, so PLEASE keep your fingers crossed that I’m cleared to run!) I’m hoping, wishing, etc. to run! In honor of the race, here is a sampling of the songs I’ve been listening to this week, plus some ones that I like to run to. Hoping that this mix will bring me some good luck with my appointment tomorrow and that everything will be perfect on Sunday. Oh yeah – and I made this into a Spotify playlist* for you. You’re welcome.

Welcome to the Black Parade – My Chemical Romance

I love running to this. When the beat picks up, I can’t help but quicken my stride.

All These Things That I’ve Done – The Killers

This song was in a commercial for the Olympics a few years ago, and since then I can’t help but associate it with running.

What Makes You Beautiful – Glee Edition

A new edition to my list of workout songs, this one just makes me smile. Even if I’m in pain!

The Future Freaks Me Out – Motion City Soundtrack

This was my “Happy Song” in college.

Surf Wax America – Weezer

Flavor of the Week – American Hi-Fi

Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen

A guest pick from B: John Williams Olympic Song

A guest pick from my brother: Thieves in the Night – Hot Chip

Spotify playlistย is approximately 37 minutes long, so you could potentially run a warm up AND a 5k while listening to this!
