What run is complete without a phenomenal playlist? I actually realized while training for the 1/2 marathon that I truly appreciate a run sans iPod, but knew that for the actual race I'd need some music to keep me moving. My playlist will definitely not be for everyone, but every song was a fun surprise that made me smile and some even gave me a little more pep in my step.
I made it a point to not listen to this playlist a single time before the race, and in fact only put it together the night before. However, I did know that I loved all the songs. I ran with my phone in an armband on Do Not Disturb mode (which turned out to be a fantastic decision), and the volume WAY up. Again, not the racing style for everyone, especially during a race called a "Rock 'n Roll" half marathon that prides itself on having music along the course, but again... it kept me going for 13.1 miles so there's that.
These songs made me HAPPY while I was running and kept me going. They may not be the most upbeat, although all the Pitbull on there would lead me to believe otherwise. I'm a huge PitBull fan these days, anyway!
I'm always looking for new ways to jazz up my Spotify playlists... do you have any killer ones you'd like to share?!
