Can't Stop the Music

It's that time again! Time for a new running playlist.  Usually I switch it up every month, but things have been crazy around here. 

But Rock 'n Roll Las Vegas is next week (WOO HOO!), so I needed something new to get me going.  I've talked before about how music helps me push through.  And this time I'm going to really need that extra motivation.  See, for RnRLV, I have a certain goal.  A goal that I've been slowly working towards for the past few races:  that magical 2 hour mark.  Right now, my 1/2 marathon PR is 2:04:41.  Just a few measly minutes off of my goal. 

Problem is, my training has been pretty lackluster.  Finding time to get more that 5 or 6 miles at a time a few days a week is extremely tough these days. 

But I'm going to go for it.  Might as well.  I know I can do the distance, I'm just going to have to push myself harder than ever before to break 2 hours.  It's only 2 hours of suffering, right? Anyone can survive 2 hours of anything, right?  Right? 


I decided this race calls for a new playlist. And my incentive to run this race within my goal time:  the playlist only has two hours worth of music.  And I'm not going to put it on repeat.  :)
