An Italian Running Playlist for the Milano Marathon

running playlist italy

My friends from @milanomarathon asked me a while back if I could put together a running playlist for their upcoming marathon. Of course, I don’t speak any Italian, nor am I familiar with the Italian music scene, but why should that stop me from trying, right?

Turns out that finding good Italian music with a high BPM is much harder than you might think….

When I started searching for Italian music, most of the stuff I got was the kind of music you hear in the background when you go to an Olive Garden (a cheesy US Italian chain restaurant – good food though, love their minestrone soup…). Obviously, not something you’d want to run with.

But after a few hours of work, I managed to get a pretty decent list of songs. I even found some that I liked for my personal running playlist (especially the Laura Pausin songs).

This list is 41 minutes long, not a marathon playlist by any means, but enough to give you a start, and it averages at 133 BPM. As I mentioned earlier, I don’t speak or understand Italian, so if these songs are offensive or too cheesy, I apologize in advance.

For those of you running the Milano marathon, buona fortuna!

Also, don’t forget to check out the running playlist iPhone app where you can get new songs and running playlists directly to your iPhone.

And now, here’s the list, I would love to hear your feedback on this, so please comment, or contact me on facebook or twitter.

It’s Finally Here! A Surprise from Running Playlist

running playlist iphone app

You may have been wondering what I’ve been working on for the past few months or maybe not, but still…

Well, I can finally share this now! Running Playlist has gone mobile and I now have an iPhone app in the apple app store.

You can get it here

This app takes the music on this website into the mobile world and cuts out the PC as the middleman for all your running playlist needs.

running playlist iphone app

Imagine that you’re on a run, and want to up your pace by using a high BPM song. Problem is, you don’t have a way to find high BPM songs in iTunes, and you won’t waste your time listening to lots of songs trying to find the right one…
Running Playlist to the rescue! Just like in the site, the new running playlist app has tons of songs listed by BPM to address all your running needs.

But wait, there’s more…

Not only can you find songs or entire playlists by BPM, you can also find them by event type. So if you need a playlist for a fast 5k and you realize that 10 minutes before the run starts, all you need to do is launch the app, tap the “5k” icon, and there you have it, 100′s of songs and playlists for you to choose.

Get the running playlist app here

The folks at Apple liked this app as well, and it’s now (as of yesterday) featured in the new and noteworthy section in its category.

Right now, the app is priced for the launch, but it won’t stay like this forever, so get it now…

Also, I would really appreciate if you share this with your friends, so we can get this app out to as many runners as possible. No reason for them to run with boring music, right? :)

Half Marathon Running Playlist of the Week: 03-24-11

running playlist

I’ve been working on this half marathon running playlist for a while now. It’s really hard to find 3-5 hours worth of good songs that not only work together as a list, but also have good BPM and are fun to listen to, but I think I’ve found a good combination.

This half marathon running playlist is 3:16:25 long and averages at 143 BPM, which is a bit high for me, but I’m sure you fast runners out there would enjoy it.
If you want to use the whole list for a half marathon, you’ll need to keep a pace of at least 15:10 mile per min, which is very adequate for a long run.

Running Playlist: Half Marathon Playlist of the week: 09-30-2010

jogging playlist

It’s Thursday again and it’s time for a race running playlist. This week, we’ll talk about a half marathon!

For me, a half marathon is about going long and slow. I’m not an elite athlete, so I don’t have any delusions about winning the run, all I want to do is run it well, with a good time and not kill myself trying.

As such, the half marathon playlist is designed to keep the BPM in a lower range of under 140. I also built in some cycle time so you can build up until about half of the run, then rest a bit and then start to go faster again until the end.

I also made sure the list is very diverse, since you’re going to be listening to for a long time. This running playlist is 2:51 hours long  so if you are using it for a half marathon, you will have to run at most at 12.45 min/mile average pace, which isn’t very fast, but it’s not too slow either.

If you are like me, you will also be pausing the music for a bit while you run, I do like turning the music off somewhere mid run to get a feel of the crowds and the world around me. Then I turn it back on, so that should add give you some more running time if you are slower than the above pace.

And now – the running playlist:
