What I'll be Listening to During My Half

Just a short post today about the playlist I created for the Lake Minnetonka Half Marathon on Sunday since my life is a little crazy right now. You can listen to my entire playlist here on Google Play but I wanted to talk about a couple of songs in particular. All together, it's 2:17:36 but I should finish before the last song is done and hit my goal time of sub 2:15.

Hamilton

There's a theme to my playlist, a good amount of songs from the original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton and Hamilton Mixtapes Vol. 1. I haven't seen Hamilton yet (we got season tickets to the Orpheum this year to have the first choice of seats when it comes to Minnesota for the 2017-2018 season) but I love the soundtrack and mixtape. I picked out my favorites and placed them throughout the playlist to give me that extra energy.

All I Want is You

This song is strategically placed at what should be right between miles 6 and 7, at the halfway point. It's our first dance song and since I will only see Mike at the beginning and end of this race (it's a point to point race) I figured I should put this in at a point where I need a pick me up. Mike always sing this song to me when it comes up and it will almost be like he's there.

Castle

Halsey_-_Badlands

This song is slower paced that you might expect since I'm gunning for a PR but this is my power song. I first heard it during a preview for The Huntsman: Winter War and I loved it. It should come on right at the end of mile 11/beginning of mile 12 give me an extra boost towards the end.

What are some of your must-have songs for a race playlist?
