The annual NYC Marathon playlist

Usually the most read and fun post that I do for everyone is my race-specific music playlist.  This isn't just some random mix of music put together to get me through my race.  This is a well thought out, time taken, thought provoking, course specific mash of music that is designed with every minute of the race taken into account.

I've done play lists for other people and they really appreciate the ebbs and flows that go along with putting a mix together.  There are things to consider such as, how long are you planning on running, hills on the course, how long flat sections are, where you think you're going to need to get a boost of energy or where you need to bring yourself back down and a whole lot other factors.

Looking at the NYC elevation profile on the link, you see that I have thought long and hard about my playlist and how I'm going to shoot for a sub-3 hour race this coming Sunday.
