5 days.

In just 5 days I’ll be participating in my second marathon – the Marine Corps Marathon. The closer it gets, the more excited (and nervous) I become. Logically, I know I can do this because I’ve done it before. But this is also a different course, a different crowd, and different weather, and anything can happen.

As I did last time, I would encourage all of you in the area to come out to the race. I know it’s on Halloween, so you might have been out late the night before, but that’s okay – come in costume! Spectating for this race is an experience in and of itself.

But aside from crowd support, I’m going to ask your help with one more thing: music.

Before the last marathon I asked for your suggestions and I filled my racing playlist with all of it. It was exactly what I needed.

Now, I’m looking to spice it up a little bit more and add some new sounds into the mix. So what new songs have you discovered over the summer? Or, what old ones have you rediscovered? What gets you going in the morning, before work, or excited for a night out?

Feel free to send your suggestions all week – I’ll be in the process of constantly updating my iPod until race day.

In between continuing to question my sanity, of course.
