Running Music for 40 Somethings

Training for a half marathon gives you time to think, ponder and reflect.

Last Saturday I ran 10 miles in preparation for my half marathon I’m running this Saturday.

Running for 2 hours requires your ipod/mp3 player to be full of good high energy music to keep you motivated!

I decided to share the tunes that keep me running in hopes to help others stay motivated. 😉

Shan’s TIP: I highly recommend you DO NOT listen to your running music when you are NOT RUNNING.  This ensures you will not get tired/bored of the song while running.
