Half-Marathon Playlist

This past weekend, I ran an 8 mile training run for A Run Through Redlands half-marathon, which I plan to run in April. I was really in need of new music to keep me inspired and moving, so I made a new playlist. This should take me through my training for the race. None of these songs are necessarily “new,” but it was still a nice change from my previous list. I sorted the songs alphabetically, and put my ipod on shuffle.

  • 1. All Summer Long-Kid Rock
  • 2. Baby I’m A Star-Prince. Pretty much each of my playlist feature Prince, because he makes me feel like this:
  • 3. Bathwater-No Doubt
  • 4. Beat It-Michael Jackson. MJ also makes each list, I like to pretend I look like this:
  • ….even though I am sure I look more like this:
  • 5. Bonafied Lovin-Chromeo
  • 6. Boys Boys Boys-Lady Gaga
  • 7. California Love- 2 Pac
  • 8. Dance With Me-112
  • 9. Dancing With Myself-The Donnas
  • 10.  Dead Man’s Party-Oingo Boingo
  • 11. Edge of Glory-Lady Gaga
  • 12. Gettin’ Over You-David Guetta
  • 13. Headsprung-LL Cool J
  • 14. HoeDown ThrowDown-Miley Cyrus
  • 15. I WannaDance With Somebody-Whitney Houston
  • 16. La Vie Boheme-Cast of Rent
  • 17. Let’s get Loud-Jennifer Lopez
  • 18. A Little Party Never Killed Nobody-Fergie (from the Great Gatsby Soundtrack)
  • 19. Lovin’ Touchin’ Squeezin’-Journey
  • 20. Nu Nu (Yeah Yeah)- Fannypack
  • 21. Outta Control-Pitbull & Baby Bash
  • 22. Pause-Pitbull
  • 23. Scream-Starkillers
  • 24. Scream & Shout-Britney Spears & Will.I.Am
  • 25. Shimmy Shimmy Ya-Ol’ Dirty Bastard
  • 26. SOS-Rihanna
  • 27. Stronger-Britney Spears
  • 28. Teenagers-My Chemical Romance
  • 29. You’re the Best-Karate Kid soundtrack

This list is 2 hours and 2 minutes, which is a little bit shorter than I hope to finish the race in, so it should be enough to get me through my training. Sometimes, I really do like running with no music and letting my head clear with the silence, but when I start adding on the higher miles, a good song helps break up the monotony.

What are your favorite songs to run to?
