I am running my 2nd half marathon next Saturday. That sounds sort of strange considering all the other runs I have done since my first, dismal 1/2 marathon two and a half years ago. It was my first real long distance run and I was a bit, let's say, overzealous. I was ready to conquer the race; Lisa and I started out a little too fast for a 13.1 mile jaunt. I bonked at mile 11 and was just 1 minute and 43 seconds shy of my under 2 hour goal. Since then I've tackled a 25K and the big old 26.2, but I haven't gone back to the 13.1.
I thought of not wearing an ipod but I know how much music pumps me up to run. So I put together a little playlist that is going to make my big old size 9 Saucanys soar through this half. SO under 2 hours.
Lose Yourself-Eminem (I always start off a race with this one)
Hey Soul Sister- Train
Rhythm of Love- Plain White Ts
Don't Stop Believin'-Journey (don't tell me this song doesn't pump you up my friends!)
Love the way you Lie-Eminem (featuring Rihanna)
Yeah 3x-Chris Brown
Only Girl (in the world)-Rihanna
Fergalicious-Black Eyed Peas
Break Your Heart--Taio Cruz
Boom Boom Boom-Black Eyed Peas
Till I Collapse-Eminem and Nate Dogg (smack in the middle of the race-inspiration!)
imma be-Black Eyed Peas
Poker Face-Lady GaGa
Low- Flo Rida
More-Usher (this is my "you-better-start-picking-up-your-pace" music)
Raise Your Glass-Pink
Just Dance-Lady Gaga
Let it Rock-Kevin Rudolf & Wayne
Bad Romance-Lady Gaga (jeez-i have lots of her on here, huh?)
How Far We've Come-MatchBox Twenty (this is my do-you-see-the-finish-then-give-it-all-u-got!)
Runaway-Bon Jovi (enough said)
Any others that you can think of? I'll need to add another 2 hours worth for Bayshore Marathon...
