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