Ohhh, there's some good stuff there! Thanks for sharing!

Irene said...

For my last marathon I asked just about everyone I know for one song that they like for my iPod marathon playlist, for the miles after 16. It was a diverse list, to say the least, but it was a blast. I had everything from pop to opera. A few surprises were "Sedated" by the Ramones, "Crazy" by Seal, "Time to Say Goodbye" by Andrea Bochelli, "Just Dance by Lady Gaga, "What I Got" by Sublime... There's more, since I ended up with over three hours of music from everyone. :) You can check out my playlist here: http://magazinesmiles.blogspot.com/2009/06/pump-up-jam.html.

Ooooh, I've been waiting for this post!

I love learning about new songs and being exposed to bands I'd never heard of or thought to listen to.

I'll get started on what gets me pumped and post soon. I generally race and train with no music, unless I'm stuck inside. But there are definitely some certain songs that I sing to myself to get through marathon training distances!

This is a GREAT mix you have going. Keeps your mind moving as well as your feet!

Aron said...

Monica @ a bold pace said...

Thanks for posting...my husband just made a couple of great playlists based on bpm/pace for myself and fellow blogger Jamie at www.aboldpace.com. Check it out... he starts his post in the same way but his is: Disclaimer...I am not a runner...

Ang said...

I just laughed out loud when I read that you thought about me instead. Too funny. I feel honored to have made the dedication list. Thanks for the shout out! I really needed a boost today!

Brandi said...

Hi!! Just HAPPENED across your blog and I LOVE IT!! :)
My husband and I are currently expecting our first child and I am SO excited to read motivating stories about "Running Mommies!"

I must say, I LOVE the idea of requesting songs from those dear to you to "dedicate" to them, while running. Though I've been told not to run anymore during pregnancy, I have SERIOUS marathon-fever! I can't wait to collect MY songs!! :)
