A Playlist for a Long, Long, Long Run.

Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon Playlist

I ran a marathon last year. I know that most of you either know that already or could care less but … you might care about what I listened to for 4 hours and 50 minutes. The idea for this post comes from NPRs recent Fresh Air about workout music which in turn caused my cube neighbor to ask me if there was a band or song that I would consider motivating. I was also motivated to put this up because I just today found the home of said playlist – my 2nd Gen iPod Nano.

And before you get too critical or threaten to burn any credit I may have as a music recommending friend – all I ask is that you remember the good times. Know that some of the selections were made out of desperation and only to fill time. I know I broke mixtape rules but … this is workout playlist. Cut me some slack. And please, if you can – try and forgive my undying adoration for Jackson Browne.

I’ve also created a playlist of all of the tracks that are available on Spotify.
