My Marathon Playlist

Five more sleeps and it’s race day!

Title Pic Marathon Playlist

One of my friends from college just finished the Maryland Ironman race last weekend, and I have to admit, Sunday’s race suddenly pales in comparison. I’m just in awe of her and what she accomplished. 

Marathon Playlist

As I mentioned awhile back, I’m pretty nervous for Sunday. I know I will complete the race, and I feel like my training has gone really well, but I have high expectations for how I’ll feel during the run. Of course I’m dreading the pain that will hit me somewhere after mile 20, but I’m hoping that now that I’m a more experienced runner, I’ll run the race a little better than the last time. Don’t get me wrong, I was thrilled with my time and energy from my last marathon, but with experience, I hope comes improvement=) And since this is likely my last full marathon, I want it to go really well.

So as a precaution, I have compiled my marathon playlist. I’m hoping to save it until closer to the end, but you’re being forewarned – this is more than 4 hours of music!
