Music for Marathon Motivation

Posted Oct 03 2012 5:45am
I am only 4 days away from marathon #20 and after being in marathon training mode for 10 months I am just not feeling it anymore. After a great 2011 of racing and PRs 2012 has not stood up to my high expectations. I got back into my overtraining and injury cycle. It all started last Winter when I chose to ignore a calf pain that eventually ended up being an early stress fracture. I had barely enough time to recover and run Boston in April. I never fully healed and as a result have dealt with more calf issues, a hamstring pain and glute issues over the Summer. A lot of icing, cross training to get through and foam rolling when I actually could run. Fortunately I am feeling good now, at least when I don't push too hard on hills but still not in full racing form.

So here I am frustrated and trying to convince myself that I can run this race for fun and regain my love of running again. How does music come into this? I am strongly considering running the marathon with music to help with my motivation. I have gotten out of the habit of running with music and my playlist needs help. This is where I need your help...What is your favorite running/workout song? Help me improve my playlist for Sunday.
