Many long-distance runners will be waking early this Sunday, Oct. 4, for the running of the 34th Twin Cities Marathon. Approximately 12,000 runners are expected to participate in the 26-mile race, and another 10,000 will compete in the Twin Cities 10-Mile.

A lot of attention is put on carb loading, proper stretching and adequate rest as we approach marathon weekend — but what about the music? Let's put together a playlist to motivate runners as they get ready for the big marathon on Sunday.
