Boston Marathon 2012 Playlist

Fueled by fine music–and adrenaline & pride–to the very end.

Created by: SBS

Realizing many of her 13.1- and 26.2-mile playlists had a lot of the same songs on it, Sarah set out to add a bevy of new music on this playlist. These tunes start out slower–to keep adrenaline in check–but then pick up as the race goes on. It lasts 4.7 hours. She thought it was way too long for her Boston effort, but due to the heat, she listened to almost all the tunes.
