Happy Tuesday! It seems like February went by in the blink of an eye and now we’re suddenly in March! Since it’s the first Tuesday of the month that means its time for another edition of Tunes Tuesday!
Today’s theme is “Pump Up Jams” but since my marathon is less than two weeks away (eek!), I thought I would highlight some songs on my playlist for the Shamrock Marathon. For me, music can really help to make my runs much more enjoyable. When my legs are burning and I just want to stop, a good upbeat song can totally change my attitude. Here are some of my current favorite songs on my marathon playlist.
Song: Stayin’ Alive
Album: Saturday Night Fever: The Original Movie Soundtrack
Artist: Bee Gees
Year Released: December 1977
This might seem like a weird choice but I’m a HUGE fan of Disco music. I also like ” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>this version by Wyclef Jean (both versions are on my playlist).
Artist: Imagine Dragons
Year Released: April 2017
I’ve been really enjoying a lot of Imagine Dragons lately, especially this song.
Song: Finesse (Remix)
Album: 24K Magic
Artist: Bruno Mars f/ Cardi B
Year Released: November 1996
I’m totally obsessed with this song and video. I’m a sucker for anything with an early 90’s vibe.
Song: God’s Plan
Album: Scary Hours
Year Released: January 2018
I love the concept for this video. It’s nice to see artists give back when they can, especially in a music video. It’s currently the #1 song in the country so I think a lot of people feel the same way about the song.
Album: U.S.A. (United State of Atlanta)
Artist: Ying Yang Twins f/ Pitbull
Genre: Southern Hip Hop
Year Released: August 2005
I mean it’s Pitbull and the Ying Yang Twins. Of course this song was going to be good!
Do you make a playlist for your races?
