Running Playlist - Go Hard or Go Home

This is #4 in my series of playlist posts - Just Run, Do It Disney, Save a Stationary Bike, Ride a Cowboy, and now...Go Hard or Go Home!

Disclaimer: Many of these songs are NOT for the faint of heart. Some are sexually explicit, most contain profanities, many are both of these things.

Party Up in Here - DMX
Milkshake - Kellis
All Night Long - Buck Cherry
Sound of Madness - Shinedown
Low - Flo Rida
Till I Collapse - Eminem
Porn Star Dancing - My Darkest Days
Whiskey in the Jar - Metallica
Bad Girlfriend - Theory of a Deadman
Burn It Down - Linkin Park
S&M - Rhianna
Can't Stop - Tupelo Honey
Ante Up - MOP
Shots - LMFAO
Bitch Please III - Eminem, Xzibit, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, TuPac, Ja Rule, DMX

When I make the final playlist for my half marathon I am going to have to find a way to strategically place songs off of this list so that they come on right when I start to lose hope of ever finishing. There is just something about these songs that gives me that extra push. If I had to choose one, it would, without a doubt, be Till I Collapse by Eminem. Whenever that song comes on my iPod I can magically increase my speed and push myself harder. I am sure it is entirely due to the pace of the song, but the lyrics don't hurt either.

"Cause sometimes you just feel tired,
Feel weak, and when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up.
But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength
And just pull that shit out of you and get that motivation to not give up
And not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse."

Enough said.

Now, go hard and then go home, but before that give me a donation (please).
