Half Marathon #5: My Playlist

I asked my beloved friends, family, and blog readers to submit me their song suggestions and inspiration for my fifth half marathon this Saturday, November 3.

First and foremost, thank you to everyone who submitted their ideas…it means the world of me. I promise I’ll be thinking of each and every one of you during the songs you submitted.  

You will all be with me through these 13.1 miles.
