I am all ready for my first 5K this Sunday. It really brings me full circle as this is the same event that I walked the half marathon for last year. Now I am running it, albeit only the 5K. Who knows, maybe next year I will be running the half marathon. That seems a long way off.
Anyway, I wanted to share my playlist. I have kind of an odd taste in running music, or so I have been told, tending to gravitate towards alternative. And it is very rare that a song makes cut after cut when I change up my playlist but I do have some old standbys (The Killers - Mr. Brightside will always be my go to song).
Cameras - Matt&Kim
You've got the love - Florence and the Machine
Starlight - Muse
Infinity Guitars - Sleigh Bells
Neighborhood #3 - Arcade Fire
Something is not right with me - Cold War Kids (also check out Louder than ever from them, maybe not for running but a really, good song)
Camera Talk - Local Natives
Boots of Danger - Tokyo Police Club
Howl - Florence and the Machine
My Body - Young the Giant (seriously, the lyrics as I am about to hit the 3 mile mark "My body tells me no. But I won't quit, cause I want more" I don't think he's talking about pushing himself to run further but it certainly worked that way for me)
Crown on the Ground - Sleigh Bells
Howlin for You - Black Keys
Dog Days are over - Florence and the Machine
Tell Em - Sleigh Bells
Mr. Brightside - The Killers
Rock that Body - Black-eyed Peas
Electric Feel - MGMT
Spiraling - Keane
If you have a favorite running song that I should have on my playlist, please feel free to share!
