Holy cow. Finding 5 hours of good running jams is harder than one would think. I also might have just spent an entire paycheck on music. You're welcome itunes.
I'm not going to post the entire playlist, because that seems a tad ridiculous and I'm pretty sure no on would get to the bottom of this post without falling asleep on their keyboard. So here are some highlights:
Pre-race I'll have to ask myself "How Far Do You Wanna Go?" by Gloriana
At the start line the race director will have to "Tell Me When to Go" by E-40.
I'm running with my best friend who is a little faster than me so at some point I'll have to jam to "Hit the Ground Running After You" by Keith Urban.
When we get to the hills I'm gonna bust out "Aint No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye.
On the outskirts of Nashville I'm going to need to hear "Country Roads" by Ryan Bingham.
If the sun gets hot I'll play "Gonna Make You Sweat" by C+C Music Factory.
When (I mean if) my bad hip starts hurting I'll play "F**k You" by Cee-lo Green.
And finally, I am ONLY allowed to play this after I have crossed the finish line: "Walk it Out" by Unk.
For all the time in-between here are just a few of my favorites:
1. Raining Men - Rihanna
2. Tootsie Roll - 69 Boyz
3. Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) - Shakira
4. Kerosene - Miranda Lambert
5. Shawty Get Loose - Lil Mama
6. Up Up and Away - Kid Cudi
7. Rompe - Daddy Yankee
8. Firework - Katy Perry
9. Songs Like This - Carrie Underwood
10. The Anthem - Pit Bull
11. Raise Your Glass - P!nk
12. We R Who We R - Ke$ha
13. Stuck Like Glue - Sugarland
14. Right Round - Flo Rida
15. No Hands - Waka Flaka Flame
Do you listen to music during races? (I'm going to try and put my ipod away for the last mile so that I can get some good pictures at the finish line and so that I can really absorb the reality that I am finishing a marthon)
