Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend – Dopey Challenge Running Playlists

A lot of runners debate whether to run with or without music. When I’m running alone or in a race, I like to have some music. It helps me focus (or zone out if necessary) and I can really channel the right level of energy with the music.

I cue up the Captain EO Entrance music before every race, for a nice calming but auspicious mood piece. When I start a race, I like to have something a little slow to calm me down. My adrenaline is rushing through and I am notorious for starting way too fast. But when I’m nearing the final stretch of the race, I rely on something with energy or a strong beat to help me push through the wall.

I’ve designed my Dopey Challenge playlists with just that strategy. Given that I’m running four races in four days, I’m also trying to hold some energy back in the first three races to push harder on the marathon. So the first three playlists are a bit slower-paced and less intense. The Walt Disney World Marathon playlist starts slow and builds to the finish.

To help me track my pace through the races, I’ve also timed the songs to where I should be in the race, thanks to the helpful spreadsheet created by Always Moving Forward.

My playlist is pretty eclectic, so there’s a little something for just about everyone. It’s a bit geeky, a bit cheesy, a bit Disney and a lot of fun. I hope you find something you like. Drop me a line if you discovered something new on my playlists. Or if you have a song you think I’ll really like.
