8k Playlist

I have had several people request to either borrow my iPod for a race or for me to create a playlist for them. I was recently asked to make a training playlist for an upcoming race. The only request was that I use some songs that make you want to get “pumped up”. I guess that my music acumen has been revealed. To me, the music you chose to listen to should make you want to stop dead in your tracks and bust a groove! This particular playlist is being created as I watch an interview with Steven Tyler, lead singer for Aerosmith. This is quite ironic as he usually makes an appearance in many of my mixes. I am very strategic when making the list. I take into account several factors when putting songs together such as the following: run distance, where the run will occur, weather, and what is the race goal. The following playlist was created for a girl who is running an 8k, in March, at the Oceanfront. This list wasn’t created for me, but I do think I will use it in some training runs in the near future.
The following is meant to be enjoyed in this particular order. I hope you can enjoy these tracks as well. Happy running. (disclaimer, sorry for any offensive language)
