The Great Bay music post

With only a few days until the Great Bay Half-Marathon I've compiled my playlist for the race. Read here for the extensive background on the method behind my music (it took 2.5 hours to compile this 1.9 hour long playlist!).
  • Proud Mary; Tina Turner
  • Stars and Boulevards; Augustana
  • Before the Worst; The Script
  • In The Hospital; Friendly Fires
  • Crackin' Up; Caesars
  • Spaceman; The Killers
  • I Turn My Camera On; Spoon
  • Lucid Dreams (Original Version); Franz Ferdinand
  • Creator; Santogold
  • Pasos de Gigante; Bacilos
  • Indian/Bangra song
  • Tears Dry On Their Own; Amy Winehouse
  • Ulysses; Franz Ferdinand
  • Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough; Michael Jackson
  • Si Senor; Gloria Estefan
  • Stormy Weather; The Kooks
  • Paris; Friendly Fires
  • Another song that I don't know the name or artist of
  • If Work Permits; The Format
  • Heart In A Cage; The Strokes
  • My Moon My Man; Feist
  • Human; The Killers
  • Time Like These; Foo Fighters

Weather is looking good (56 degree at gun time) and just received confirmation for the car and hotel reservations. the only thing that has me concerned still is that the race starts at 11am--what the hell do you do until 11am? I mean I can eat a full breakfast, stretch properly, read "Anna Karenina," and still get there before the port-o-potty line forms.

Best of luck to you.
I always have trouble trying to figure out what to eat before a late morning race.
I would go with oatmeal early, and pack a clif/powerbar to have about 1 hour before the race.

Sounds like it's going to be near perfect weather conditions!! Best of luck to you! And by the way, I vote you use the extra time for sleeping in (assuming you aren't some kind of freak like me who can't sleep a wink the night before a race) :)

Good GOD man. That is a lot of time to put towards a playlist. I’m not sure that I have the patients to put up with anything that long.

Besides, I’m an UBER dork and I listen to talk radio and podcasts most of the time while running anyway. :)

You might want to add "My Hero" by Foo Fighters to your playlist. Great list.

GOOD LUCK AND KICK ASS !!!!
