The marathon playlist

Who wants to contribute to my marathon playlist?

As I was driving down to Pike County for an assignment this morning I started thinking about what I'm going to put on the playlist for the Columbus Marathon, one month from today. I'm going to build it on my blog, starting with songs that jog amusing and/or happy thoughts, and songs that remind me of wonderful people. So if you consider yourself a wonderful person suggest a song and I'll add it to the list.

I blogged about my Cleveland Marathon playlist here and here.

  • Creed, "Rain" -- The song I started the Cleveland Marathon to
  • Beatles, "The Long and Winding Road" - The song I finished the Cleveland Marathon to
  • Queen, "Somebody to Love" - During Cleveland somebody ran next to me and said "Thanks for sharing the queen". At that point I realized my iPod was too loud!
  • ??? "Cleveland Rocks" - During Cleveland...
  • Bruce Springsteen, "Rosalita" -- After completing the Cleveland Marathon I was so excited to go back to MIT but my iPod was dead so I made a mix CD for the ride to Worthington my first day back. This was the first track on the CD (which is still in my car).

  • OAR, "Heaven" -- Song that got me through my 18-miler this season, and it reminds me of the day they used my iPod in spin
  • Rilo Kiley, "With Arms Outstretched" - Got me through my first 14-miler of the season
  • Aretha, "RESPECT" - Jess F and I got dragged on stage after the Cinco de Julio race. What a fun night!
  • Melissa Etheridge, "I Run for Life" -- Reminds me of Gigi :(
  • Lady Gaga, "The Edge of Glory" -- Got me through many workouts this year
  • Wilco, "Summerteeth" -- Reminds me of my trip to Florida
  • Dave Matthews Band, "Best of What's Around" -- Reminds me of college
  • Girl Talk, "In Step" -- Don't know why, but reminds me of driving around Maine
  • Better than Ezra, "Desperately Wanting" -- Reminds me of high school cross country
  • Glee, "One" -- My favorite musical performance on Glee
  • Bruce, "Blinded by the Light" -- The song Kelly referenced on The Office while making fun of Glee
  • ???, "Midnight Train to Georgia" -- Reminds me of my favorite scene in 30 Rock when Kenneth tries to leave after realizing he is addicted to **gasp** caffeine!!
  • Tom Petty, "American Girl" -- Song they played in Parks and Recreation when Leslie pulled off the harvest festival. I want to try to download "The Pit"!
  • Beatles, "Strawberry Fields Forever" -- Charlie's tattoo on Lost! 
  • ???, "Hang on Sloopy" -- Well, I'm running the Columbus Marathon
  • New Pornographers, "Adventures in Solitude" -- Driving to Pike County today I got the "low battery" notice on my shuffle. I decided that the song that was playing when it died would make the list. This was it.
  • Death Cab, "Movie Script Ending" -- Reminds me of my summer on the Cape
  • Bruce Springsteen, "The Rising" -- Reminds me of covering politics in Maine in 2008
  • Black Eyed Peas, "I Gotta Feeling" -- Reminds me of my sisters wedding
  • Black Eyed Peas, "One Tribe" -- Reminds me of endless hours on the elliptical trainer as I was getting back into fitness
  • Kris Allen, "Live Like You're Dying" -- One of the few songs I liked of the god awful songs they always played at Aspen Fitness
  • Offspring, "Pretty Fly for a White Guy" -- Crossfit at Ohio Krav Maga and Fitness

So here's where I need your help, suggest songs and I'll add you to the list!!
  • Shakira, "Waka Waka" - Reminds me of Jess F!
  • Florence and the Machine, "Dog Days are Over" -- Reminds me of Jamie K (who might join me in my next venture, which I have yet to announce = 0 )
  • Brittany, "3" -- Reminds me of Becky E., we must run together soon!!
  • Linkin Park, "Waiting for the End"; and Beyonce, "Single Ladies" -- Reminds me of that crazy night out with Beth O.! 
  • That song that goes "Bow-chick-a-wow-wow whatcha gonna do" BETH WHAT IS IS??? -- Reminds me of my Warrior Ladies Beth O. and Evelyn H.
