Half Marathon Playlist

Happy Tuesday y'all!

How is your week so far?
Yesterday was a typical Monday at work, playing catch up from the weekend. After work, I met some friends for "Monday, Runday, Funday" We got in a good 3.5 miles and had some good photo ops along the way. It was a great way to blow off the steam of the day and get some much needed "girl time"

I successfully stayed away from extra sugar during the day yesterday. But I did break down and eat some corn tortilla chips when I got home from my run. I don't know what it is, but I always crave something salty and crunchy in the evenings.

I'm currently training for the Camp Barnabas Half Marathon in Springfield, Missouri on April 20. I'm feeling pretty good about it at this point. I train in a big group and I'm used to the chatter of the group but in a big race where I don't know anyone, I need something to help keep me on track, therefore I tend to run with music. I usually download premade playlists from Rock My Run but I want to try to make my own this time. Here's what I have so far:

C'mon -- Diplo, Tiesto
Feel This Moment -- Pitbull,Christina
I Cry -- Flo Rida
Good Feeling -- Flo Rida
Sing -- My Chemical Romance
Hall of Fame -- The Script
Stronger -- Kelly Clarkson
Catch My Breath -- Kelly Clarkson
Try -- Pink
Dynamite -- Taio Cruz
Burn For You -- Toby Mac
Remember the Name -- Fort Minor
Jesus Walks -- Kanye
Don't Fail Me Now -- Melaine Amaro
My Songs..... -- Fall Out Boy

I'm not exatly sure how long this is yet. I've haven't really played around with it that much, I'm just trying to think of good, high energy songs right now. Suggestions are greatly appreciated!!  :-)

Have a great day!!

Do you run with music?

What songs are on your workout playlist currently?


  1. LMFAO always picks up my pace because the beats are fun!

    Good luck on your half! :)

    1. Thanks, Melissa. I forgot about LMFAO

  2. This is great! I'm running my first 5k of the year on Saturday and am completely winging it! I've run a couple times, but haven't trained hardly at all! I know that I need some upbeat tunes! This is perfect! Thanks! :)

    1. Good luck on your 5k, Lydia. Let me know how it goes.

  3. One of my favorites is "Titanium" ... Especially the version done by Avery Wilson last year on The Voice. Thanks for giving me some new ideas for my own playlist!
