Thank you all SO much for your amazing comments yesterday. I was really content with the outcome of Sunday's race, especially as I thought about the fact that I get to always have a 2:00:00 half marathon in my race history. Reading your sweet and thoughtful comments made me feel even happier about it!
I wanted to share my playlist that I used while I was running on the West Side Highway. I actually went music-less through Central Park and down Seventh Avenue through Times Square because I wanted to save music for the rough times.
Thank goodness because, like I said, the West Side Highway was really rough for me because my body started giving out at that point. My pinkeye has come back, just in the other eye, making me think that my body was still fighting this virus all weekend and I was just in a lull. That would explain why I was so fatigued!
This playlist was pretty awesome. It kept me going through some pretty shitty miles. It's a big mix, as you can see -- from Kelly Clarkson to The Lonely Island to The Heavy to M.I.A.
What's your go-to pump-up song right now? Has a playlist helped you through rough times in a race before?
