I am notoriously lazy about updating my running playlist.

No seriously.

I actually harassed my Facebook friends into creating one for me when I ran my first half marathon back in July.

Not surprisingly, some of these tunes ended up putting a little pep in my step throughout the mile markers, and I realized how important it is to have new music to jazz to along the way. I had gotten used to all of the music I'd been listening to throughout my weeks of training, even tuning it out for the most part.

If you were going to make a running playlist for your next race, what would be the top five songs you'd look forward to?

Here's my list:
  1. You F*ckin' Did It - Jason Mraz
  2. Faster - Matt Nathanson
  3. Rain On Me - The Paperboys
  4. Pied Piper - The Senate
  5. Pompeii - Bastille

  1. Found your blog via twitter, keep up the good work. I generally run long distances so my five bring it home songs would be:

    1. Your Gonna Go Far, Kid - The Offspring
    2. C'mon Feel the Noise - Quiet Riot
    3. Highway to Hell - AC/DC
    4. Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
    5. Run Like Hell - Pink Floyd

    1. Thanks, Brad! I'm glad you stumbled your way here. :) Looks like I've got some downloading to do, but "Don't Stop Believin'" has been on my list since Day 1 of running!
