NYC Half 2013 Playlist

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?

  1. I love so much that there's a song from the Pitch Perfect soundtrack on here. Seriously.

  2. Nothing better than a good playlist to get you going. A few that will be essential if I need a pick me up during my half this weekend (since I try to wait to turn it on until I NEED it)
    Zedd - Clarity
    Pitbull - Feel This Moment
    Conor Maynard - Turn Around
    Calvin Harris/Florence & the Machine - Spectrum

    But give me a good beat and I get pumped!

  3. Totally stalking this playlist now. :) For the past few days, I've had "My Song Knows What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)" by Fall Out Boy stuck in my head--such a good pump up song!

  5. Can you send some of those to me before we go to DC? And maybe make a CD (I don't have an iPod hookup in my car lol)
