Fun 1/2 Marathon Playlist

I only do one half-marathon a year and for the last three years it has been the Rock n' Roll Half-Marathon in Seattle.  I really love this race.  I love that the course goes along beautiful Lake Washington, the downhills that give you an extra boost of energy and the fun vibe created from all of the bands playing on the course.  I really feel like music is a huge factor in my running performance.  I didn't train as much as I wanted to for the race this year because my 2 year old son decided he didn't like the jog stroller anymore (I actually had several training days running around our house, makes me laugh), but I made sure that I had the right playlist and the race wasn't a problem.  Great music with a good beat can really make running fun and painless.  Also, with a faster paced song your legs will move faster!  Here is the playlist that got me to the finish line with a smile.
