Playlist Chicago 2012

So I know some of you have been on "pins and needles" wanting to know what I listened to during my 4 hours 23 minutes, 11 second run through Chicago this past Sunday- Yep that is my time.  I of course being me- chattynatty- have plenty to write about the marathon and the weekend, but I will start with the Playlist...

Here are the songs and the singers.  Nope they aren't in order because I hit shuffle before I start my race to keep me on the edge of my seat wondering what song is going to happen next.  I really loved my playlist and thought/was reminded about various people during the race because of the songs I heard.  I only skipped songs within the last mile of the race, because I just needed that extra Humph! at the end.  I didn't end up listening to all my songs, but here they are, with some commentary.

1. I gotta Feeling      Black Eyed Peas (first song that played, pretty appropriate and great pump up song)
2. Back N Black      ACDC (2nd song I heard along the race route- totally reminds me of my rockin daughter)
3. Jolene                    Dolly Parton (love this song so PURE- 3rd song I heard on the route)

12. Chasing the Sun   The Wanted
13. Chicken Fried      Zac Brown Band ( total funny and reminds me of my BRB and my love for Wings)

61. We Are Young    Fun  (Daughter loves this song, again not appropriate lyrics for a 4 year old, but its all about the rhythm of the music right)
62. We Built This City  Starship  (2nd to last song of the Marathon- totally appropriate to listen to as you run down Michigan Avenue towards Grant Park and finish line)
63. Whistle  Flo Rida
64. Wild Ones  Flo Rida and Sia
65. You Spin Me Round  Dead or Alive (another great movie "The Hangover" song- that movie just makes my cheeks hurt because I laugh so hard when I watch it)

Well that's all gang- great diversity and great pace music.  Thanks again for the music BRB- helped me get through the marathon.  Music is a major motivator for me when running and fun to remember all the different people/events when listening to the songs.
