    Default Power Songs for Marathon Run

    Hey Guys,

    This Sunday I'm gonna run a half-marathon & I need some musical juice to keep me going.

    Of course, the best thing about running is preparing the running mix. I'm looking for some new Power Songs to keep me going in those last painful miles (no Eye of the Tiger please).

    Anything to keep my mind off stupid questions like "why am I subjecting myself to such pain?". Preferably in the house, tribal vein would be great.

    Last year's faves were:
    Viva Belize:

    Titan And Enceladus:

    Cheers!

    I've got about 100 nonstop, fixed-BPM mixes for runners at podrunner.com (click my sig), or on iTunes podcasts (search "podrunner"). They're available between 130 and 180 BPM and average an hour each. That might help.

    take a set you like and turn the bpm to 132 or above... easiest way.
