Although I’ve been running and racing since 2010, I only started listening to music on my runs in June of this year. I took pride in not needing music to get through my runs. Then? Enter Songza. As soon as I found out about Songza and started using RunKeeper instead of my beloved Garmin, my runs changed.
I now love listening to music on my runs. There are times when I’ll be in the zone running and two or three songs will go by and I won’t really have heard them, but there are also some songs that just push me to run harder and faster.
Since both Songza and RunKeeper use data and; therefore, battery life on my phone, I’m actually kind of nervous that my battery will die before I finish my marathon in 11 days. (Yes, I’m going to keep counting down until the day arrives. I love countdowns – hence the countdown button in my sidebar. Sorry I’m not sorry).
Enter: the play list.
My goal this weekend is to spend some time making a roughly 4.5 hour playlist for race day (and then cross my fingers I finish in 4:30 or less!).
There are two songs that will be making multiple appearances on list. There may also be dancing while running and listening to these songs.
Perk to living alone: only my cat can judge me dancing and singing to ROAR.

How can you not want to rock out in your living room while listening to this song?!
I’m a huge Avicii fan. HUGE. I loved this song from the second it was released and the entire album is great.
Never fear – once finished I’ll post my playlist for y’all.
