My Half Marathon Playlist

Tomorrow I will be running in my fifth half marathon and last night I took the time to put together a rockin’ playlist that I’m hoping will help motivate me on race day.

Half Marathon Playlist

A bunch of your recommendations found their way onto my iPod and this playlist so I wanted to be sure to share it with you guys.

I hope you find a new song or two that you enjoy!

Half Marathon Playlist

  • Melanie Amaro – Don’t Fail Me Now – I take the “feet don’t fail me now” lyrics quite literally when I run to this song.
  • Rudimental feat. John Newman – Feel the Love – It is ridiculously hard for me not to sing the chorus of this song out loud, but since they repeat it approximately 10,000 times in this song, I try my best to refrain.
  • Emeli Sande – Next to Me She has the voice of an angel.
  • Calvin Harris feat. Florence Welch – Sweet Nothing – I definitely caught Ryan singing “you’re giving me such sweet loving” in the car one day. Loving? Nothing? Same thing.
  • GossipHeavy Cross – This is the song from the Dior commercial with Charlize Theron. Wait, you don’t download songs from television advertisements? Oh.
  • Martin Solveig – Big In Japan Ridiculously catchy.
  • Bingo Players – Cry Just a Little
  • Scatman John – Scatman – I may never understand the words to this song.
  • The Temptations Ain’t Too Proud to Beg
  • Pitbull ft. T-Pain – Hey Baby
  • Hercules – Zero to Hero
  • Moby – Natural Blues – This song is rather slow in the beginning, but it picks up as it continues and I always find myself getting really into it.
  • Usher – Scream
  • Yellowjackets – Wavin’ Flag A little acappella music for some variety!
  • Taylor Swift – I Knew You Were Trouble Shame on me now.
  • K’naan – Better The lyrics that say “I’m only getting better” remind me to push myself and try to improve on every run.
  • Black Box – Strike It Up
  • PJ Loughran – ShoeboxI couldn’t find a quality YouTube video for this song, but you can listen to it in iTunes. It’s a song my friend Ryan put on a CD for me in high school that I’ve loved ever since!
  • Salt n Pepa – Shoop
  • Hercules – The Gospel Truth
  • Evanescence – Bring Me to Life
  • Manian – Ravers in the UKTaken from a previous BodyPump release! Major pump up music.
  • Destiny’s Child – No, No, No
  • Macklemore feat. Wanz  – Thrift Shop – This song is horrible in the best way possible. I sing “this is f-ing awesoooome” aloud as I run when this song comes on to try to remind myself that running a half marathon is pretty f-ing awesome.
  • Usher ft. Will.I.Am – OMG
  • Basshunter – Now You’re Gone
  • Loleatta Halloway – Love Sensation
  • Basshunter All I Ever Wanted
