My Lakefront Marathon Playlist

Normally during races, my iPod stays home. I'm making an exception for Lakefront Marathon. 

Since I'm not "racing," I decided what better time than now to create a completely random playlist? It includes 26 songs - each will play on repeat for one mile. Nothing too fast until the end considering I have to keep my pace slow throughout! And sorry Mom, Another One Bites the Dust did not make the cut :)
  1. Eyes Open - Taylor Swift
  2. Home - Phillip Phillips
  3. The Cave - Mumford & Sons
  4. Wide Awake - Katy Perry
  5. Madness - Muse
  6. Some Nights - Fun
  7. All These Things That I Have Done - The Killers
  8. Little Talks - Of Monsters and Men
  9. Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People
  10. Good Time - Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen
  11. Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
  12. Hurts So Good - John Mellencamp
  13. It's My Life - Bon Jovi
  14. American Girl - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
  15. Love the Way You Lie - Eminem
  16. The Fighter - Gym Class Heroes
  17. What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger) - Kelly Clarkson
  18. Indestructible - Robyn
  19. Die Young - Ke$ha
  20. Blackout - Breathe Carolina
  21. In the End - Linkin Park
  22. You're Gonna Go Far, Kid - The Offspring
  23. Ni**as in Paris - Kanye West & Jay Z
  24. Titanium - David Guetta & Sia
  25. We Run the Night - Havana Brown
  26. Starships - Nicki Minaj
Let's discuss: What's on your running/race playlist and how do you pick which songs make the cut? I didn't put a ton of thought into this list and just picked songs I listened to while running over the summer/fall.

  1. I'm loving Mumford & Sons right now!

    I like to pick music based on how fast I wanna go :)

    1. Mumford & Sons is so great for running, especially easy pace days :)

  2. I love "Hurts so Good" from John Mellencamp! I think running with music is fun. I pick a mix of songs that are upbeat or mean a lot to me.

    1. Do you ever get running songs stuck in your head? Happens to me all the time :)

  3. So many good ones! I also love Stronger by Kelly Clarkson and my absolute favorite running song is Devour by Shinedown

    1. Ooh, I should add that to my list as well!
