As soon as she hits mile 10, Hungry Runner Girl pops in her headphones and rocks out to her perfectly curated marathon playlist.

I absolutely love to run with music. When I am not out running with friends, I most definitely have my wireless headphones in my ears as I listen to my favorite songs. Music motivates me to keep going. Certain songs give me a second wind. Some lyrics help me to think more positively, and there are many times that the fast beat of a song pushes my legs to go a little bit faster to match the beat.

I will be running the St. George Marathon in less than two weeks, so I have been working on my perfect playlist. In a marathon I usually do the first 8-10 miles without music. I try to enjoy the scenery and focus on not going out too fast. At about mile 10, I put on my music. It always gives me the boost of energy that I need to get through the rest of the race!
