My Half Marathon Playlist!

I’ve shared with you some of the songs I enjoy running to, but I feel like you need to see the WHOLE playlist from my last half marathon to get an idea of what keeps me going step after step!

Half Marathon Playlist

A few things you might notice about this half marathon playlist:

  1. A lot of the songs are Christian songs, but not all.
  2. I like Glee music. In fact, it’s some of the only “popular” music I know. And I usually like the Glee version better, especially for running.
  3. I have some kids’ songs on my list. And they’re some of my favorites.
  4. It’s a really long playlist. And this is the cut down version. I like all of the songs on here and like the option of having any of them come up when I hit shuffle.

Here it is in all its eclectic glory…

    10,000 Reasons is a good one. This sounds like a great play list!
