Tomorrow is March!! Say WHAT?!

I remember as a child time moving slower than molasses. One year was an eternity. Now at 33, time is moving faster than I can say time. I’m praying that it’s just the season of life I am in. I’ve been working on intentionally keeping our schedule as unscheduled as possible, but with kids that’s really hard to do. I find that always having something to do makes time move faster because I’m always trying to keep track of what comes next, rather than just living life and being in the present moment and day.

In two weeks {OMG did I just say two?!?! AHHHHHHHH} I’m running Rock N Roll DC !! I’m nervous as heck {I get this way before every single marathon – questioning if I can actually finish 26.2 miles} but also because the post marathon high is like nothing else. I *literally* can’t wait to feel sore and have a hard time walking down the stairs. If you are trying to find some new tunes to add to your marathon {or race of any distance} play list, check out the top 10 for March from Run Hundred. As always this list is posted with permission. It’s not cool to steal or copy.

How Long Is This Marathon

This month’s top 10 list draws heavily from the Top 40 chart and club scene. While this reliance on pop tunes and big beats might make the list seem one-dimensional at first, there are just enough curve balls to keep it interesting.

On the pop front, you’ll find new singles from Gwen Stefani and Ellie Goulding. On the dance side, there’s a track from DJ to the stars Paul Oakenfold and a remix from Diplo and Sleepy Tom that borrows its hook from Jade’s 1992 hit “Don’t Walk Away.” Lastly, the wild cards include an Australia-via-Jamaica pop song from Sia and Sean Paul plus a single featuring Pitbull and Robin Thicke on vocals with music from Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.

In short, the allure of this month’s list is that it emphasizes catchy, rhythmic-driven tunes that will give your routine an immediate boost. At the same time, there are enough surprises and detours to keep you engaged. So, when you’re ready to move, you’ll find plenty of good times—and a little adventure—below.
