It’s coming! It’s coming! My half marathon (affectionately referred to as “Halfsie #2”) is just around the corner, and I can’t wait!
I’ve been training for a half marathon for the last two and a half months, and I am very excited to see what I can do on Sunday at the San Jose Rock n Roll Half Marathon. Half marathon training is never easy, and I don’t think anyone ever really feels like they did enough to prepare. I missed a few runs, cut a few short, and didn’t stick to my Nike Training Plan as well as I intended, so I’m a little curious—and by curious, I mean anxious—to see how I’ll actually do on race day.
Until then, I’m just trying to stay hydrated, rest a bit, and prep the all-important race-day playlist.
I enjoy running without music while trail running and when speed isn’t the goal. However, during a race, I need a really good beat and a killer running music playlist to keep me going and pump me up through each mile.
Are you looking for some new running music? Check out my list of current favorites below, and let me know if you have any good songs that I should add to my playlist.
Bang Bang – will.i.am
Jealous (I Ain’t With It) Dillon Francis Remix – Chromeo
You Make Me – Avicii
Delta – C2C
Runaway Baby – Bruno Mars
Comme Un Enfant (Freaks Radio Mix) – Yelle
i – Kendrick Lamar
All About That Bass – Meghan Trainor
Don’t – Ed Sheeran
Miss Jackson – Panic! At the Disco (featuring Lolo)
Happy running (and dancing)!
