Half Marathon Playlist

Hi Everyone!

I love listening to music when I run. I don't do it all the time, because I also love the meditative state that comes with running: the connection to the moment and each breath you take. 

For my half marathon I had a great playlist that kept me motivated the entire time. I kept it upbeat, and I put my i-pod on shuffle. 

One of my favorites is always "Seven Nation Army" the Glitch Mob re-mix version. 

I made my playlist exactly two hours because I was confident that I would finish the race by that time. (Woohoo for surpassing that goal!)

I am always looking for new songs to add to my playlist, so if you have any recommendations feel free to post them in the comments below. 


PS I tweaked my ankle at work on Monday, and it's been a bit sore so I have taken the last few days off to let it heal. Taking time off is never fun, especially when the rest of you feels great, motivated and ready to go. It's worth it to take a few days off and make sure you're 100% healthy and healed in the long run. Planning a workout tomorrow. :) See you then!


  1. these are all my taste and a big acquisition for my running music :)

  2. Hi Melissa, Im curious if the workouts you post are your entire workout? I understand that when doing the exercises they are like cardio, however do you do any daily running in conjunction with your workout? I am new to your blog but have really enjoyed completing your workouts. Thanks for motivating others!

  3. Pumpin Blood-NONONO
    Closer-Nine Inch Nails
    Hurricane- MS MR
    Buried Alive-Yeah Yeah Yeahs

    Those are some of my favorites for running! I'll have to check out this awesome list! Feel better soon Melissa!

  4. Eric Prydz, Eminem, Rihanna, WANTED, Black eyed peas are some of my fav singers. I listen to their songs while i am running or body building.

  5. Love it. Thanks for sharing. Hope your ankle is all healed. xo

  6. I put together a playlist for the Honolulu Marathon and it contains all of my favorite running music. I spent a long time putting it together. Check it out, maybe you'll find something new that helps push you along in your next race?
