Whether you’re training for a marathon or you’re just getting into running, everyone needs these 4 essential things before they hit the pavement/treadmill: comfortable shoes, breathable clothing, a training plan and a killer playlist.

We put these songs in order for when we think you’ll need them. From a slow, gradual tempo to warm up, to passing the slowpokes, to that final push toward the finish line—if you don’t already have these songs on your running playlist… add them now and thank us later!

The Monumental Marathon is November 9th and we have your chance at winning $800 in NEW running gear to celebrate crossing the finish line thanks to Franciscan Health Sports Medicine!
