Marathon Music Mix

October 5, 2009

Over the weekend a friend asked what I think about for the 3+ hours when I’m running a marathon. Frankly, I’m not the type of person to think about important things, like what I have to do for the rest of the week or writing out lists in my head. I also don’t focus too much on my split times, if I can read the pace on my Garmin, that means I must not be going fast enough. Also, obsessing over your pace every mile is just stressful. That’s what training is for, so you can feel comfortable running at your marathon pace and not have to worry about it. This weekend, I had a planned 18 mile run in Santa Monica and right when I was about to start, my Garmin froze up. I immediately freaked out and started to get really moody because I am that dependent on my watch. How far have I gone? What is my pace? What time is it? I would have no idea..but honestly, not having the watch was liberating. I truly enjoyed running the 18 miles without constantly looking down at my watch and watching the pace times change and how much further I have to go. Not to say that I’m not going to wear my Garmin ever again, (I went home and charged it and it started to work again), but it’s nice knowing that I can run without a fancy watch. When did running become so expensive anyways?

Anyways, thought I would share a sample of my marathon playlist that keeps me going from Mile 1-26. It’s a really random mix of trance, hip-hop, alternative rock, & everything in between.
