Jana R’s Half Marathon PR

By: Jana R.

“This eclectic mix helped me start a little slower and then blast off to a new half PR! From Jack Johnson to Elvis, Beatles to Elton, Daft Punk to Muse and even a little Harry Belafonte thrown in, this one’s almost unclassifiable. It’s about 2.6 hours long, so a good Half Marathon length…I always plan my Half mixes to be longer than my anticipated finish time in case something unexpected happens. There is nothing worse than struggling during a race and running out of tunes. What I do is zero in on the song that should be playing right at the finish time I’m aiming for. When it comes on, I mentally know…THIS IS IT!”

    While they may certainly be purchased by people who
    are not exactly what we would consider rich, the more luxurious ones
