BQ Marathon Playlist

bqCreated by: SBS

"Here are the songs that pushed me toward a personal best in the Portland Marathon. Starts out slower--like I planned on doing--then hits the throttle and holds it there. This playlist is 4.2 hours but I heard less than two hours of it. (If you are anti-Britney Spears, you'll have to make a lot of substitutions. You've been warned!)"
