Your 2 Hour 37 Minute Half Marathon Playlist

There are two types of people in this world, people who can run without music and the rest of us. I can only run without music if I'm running with fun people and even then I reserve the right to say alright now stop, music time. I LIKE RUNNING TO MUSIC! SO SHOOT ME! It blows my mind when I other runners try to fight the rest of the world who prefer to run with music. "BUT IT'S NOT SAFE AND THE RACE DIRECTOR SAYS NO MUSIC." They scream, stamping their feet and crossing their arms over their chest. To those people I say --

shut up

Yes, safety first. But this can be solved by running with one ear bud in instead of two. (I actually prefer running with one ear bud in during a race. You get the best of both worlds! You get your Katy Perry Firework when you hit the wall and the spectators screaming your name.) Some of us actually enjoy running to music! (AND how would I dance run if I weren't listening to some Beyonce?)

I keep being asked what I listen to on my runs right now so I went ahead and took a screenshot of my long run playlist to share with you all. This guy is about 2 hours and 37 minutes long so if you're looking for a half marathon playlist, I've got you covered.

It's a pretty diverse playlist but I love me some Top 40 an some good old fashion Rock N' Roll. And honestly, if "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" isn't on your playlist, then what are you doing with your life?

Whats your favorite song to run to right now? Mine is "Bang My Head" feat. Sia by David Guetta. That song IS MY JAM! Let me know in the comments below! Until next time, #RunSelfieRepeat.


Kelly Roberts

My name is Kelly Roberts and I am a 25 year old New York City resident. My story made headlines when I took selfies with hot guys “hottie hunting” my way through the NYC Half Marathon. My blog, is bursting with humor and personal stories that lend an insight into the world of running and lead you to believe that just about anyone, regardless of their fitness level, can and should fall in love with running. Though currently an avid runner, I never would have predicted I would run marathons. I was the kid who used to hide in the bushes or play dead to get out of running the mile in school. I HATED running. But running has given me a purpose. It’s shown me that I really am limitless. In the two years since I started running, I’ve run multiple half marathons, 10ks, and 5ks, and two full marathons. My mission is to inspire others to find the courage to say yes to themselves all the while making them laugh hysterically because laughing is the solution to everything.
