New York City Marathon Playlist

I know I haven’t chatted much about my training (or at all?), but I cannot believe I will be running the New York City Marathon this SUNDAY! Eek! I am so nervous, yet super excited.

I don’t plan to listen to music for much of the race, as I hope the crowds will keep me entertained.  However, after studying the course and reading numerous race reviews, there are a few portions of the race where I think I will need to put in the headphones and rely on music to keep me motivated.


Here’s the my playlist (in no particular order)!
