Jingle Jog – Playlist Time

Christmas Sesame Street

What is your Christmas running motivation?

The Atlanta weather has been so dreary lately, so I decided to be a little more proactive on my goals that I recently set. On Saturday, December 10, I will be running the Jingle Jog and to help motivate myself, I created a Christmas playlist for the race. I am the type of person who is encouraged by music. You must have the right kind of music for whatever it is you are trying to accomplish. If you are trying to run a race, you don’t listen to Celine Dion, Kenny G., or Michael Bolton unless you want to fall asleep at the starting line.

Here is what will be motivating me to cross the Jingle Jog finish line:

  • “Mad Russian’s Christmas (Instrumental)” by Trans-Siberian Orchestra
  • “We Three Kings” by Pentatonix
  • “Christmas In Hollis” by Run-DMC
  • “The Nutcracker Suite (Baz Kuts Breaks Mix)” by Berlin Symphony Orchestra
  • “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” by Viva Voce
  • “Toy Jackpot” by Blackalicious
  • “Electronic Santa” by Blazer Force
  • “The First Noel” by Scott Blackwell
  • “Wonderful Christmas Time” by Family Force 5
  • “O Holy Night” by Code Of Ethics
  • “Winter Wonderland” by Joy Electric
  • “Baby, It’s Cold Outside (Mulato Beat Remix)” by Louis Armstrong
  • “Jolly Old Saint Nicholas” by Viva Voce
  • “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day” by All Star United
  • “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” by Band Aid
  • “Jingle Bells” by The Brian Setzer Orchestra
  • “The Little Drummer Boy” by Candi Pearson Shelton
  • “O Come Emmanuel” by Chasing Furies
  • “(It Must Have Been Ol’) Santa Claus” by Harry Connick, Jr.
  • “I Pray On Christmas” by Harry Connick, Jr.
  • “Happy Christmas” by John Lennon & Yoko Ono
  • “Hark! the Herald Angels Sing” by Weezer
  • “Christmas At Ground Zero” by Weird Al Yankovic

What motivates you to get out and run during the holidays?

    What motivates me to run during the holidays? Simple- I don’t want to look like Santa when I am done eating all the holiday delights!

    Great post and good food for thought. It’s SO hard to find time to run with the time change and it getting dark so early. I never feel like running the second I get home from work. But Zig Ziglar said the motivation comes AFTER the action, so I guess I just need to get in motion, then I’ll “feel” like it. haha

      Thank you Janie! I understand 100% regarding the motivation. I’m very fortunate to have friends who give me that extra push I need.
