New York City Marathon 2013 Playlist

If you run any marathon, our hats are off to you. The discipline, strength and intensity of training is an accomplishment in and of itself. The day-of marathon? That's a different matter entirely.

We know you need some motivation to keep one foot in front of the other. But cheering loved ones with signs can only do so much.

If you like to listen to music while you run -- and there are many, many reasons why you might want to consider doing so -- we've put together the most monster playlist ever: 60 songs, 4 hours, everyone from Lorde to Haim to MIKA to Chromeo.

Happy running, readers:
