10 Songs You DO NOT Want on Your Marathon Playlist (And Sparkly Soul Winner!)

6 Feb

Happy Monday everyone! Let’s start the week out with a fun, funny post shall we?

I have been listening to my iTunes library on constant shuffle lately, trying to come up with a 4 1/2 hour playlist for RnR New Orleans. I won’t listen the entire time, I’m sure of it, but when I need to turn off my mind during a hard part of a race, having amped up music helps with that.

As I was listening, so many songs came on that made me think “Eek, I could NEVER run to that song.” I also turned to my fellow FitFluential Ambassadors and my group of crazy running friends for input.

So here you have it, 10 Songs You DO NOT Want on Your Marathon Playlist:

10 Songs You Do Not Want

I could never run to any of these songs for various reasons from the slow tempo, to negativity, to talk of death and pain and bodies hitting the floor. YIKES!

What would you add to this list?

    I own the album that Drowning Pool song is from. 😉 I’m a rock girl at heart.

    That song list is pretty funny. “Mad World” would be the worst marathon song EVER!
