Rock N’ Run

Okay – so tonight’s show probably has the lowest classic rock/rock n’ roll concentration of any of Fighting Rose’s shows thus far. But there’s a good (in my opinion) reason for this; it’s running season in Portland! The Portland Marathon was last weekend (mad props to all you finishers), summer temps are finally cooling down enough to enjoy running outside, and regardless – who’s workout playlist couldn’t use a little boost every now and then? I’m going with now, because I was so impressed with myself (shocking, right?) when the playlist I put together for my own half-marathon experience this summer turned out to be pretty much perfect in every way, and I want to share the perfection with all y’all. It was a playlist that I’d call “classic-rock heavy” but definitely not exclusive; as much as I hate to give anything to pop music, there are some beats out there that add to the “killing it” feeling during a race that just can’t be ignored. So here’s “Part 1” of my 13.1 mile playlist…
