We’ve been counting down the days for weeks, and now it’s finally here: Run to Work Day Philly is tomorrow! You didn’t think we were going to leave you high and dry without an official Run to Work Day playlist, did you?

This week’s workout playlist—which we’re doing a day early, to get it to you in time for Run to Work Day—is designed with tomorrow’s morning run in mind. It’s jam-packed with over an hour’s worth of wake-you-up, happy-morning tunes—think “Walking on Sunshine,” “The Good Life,” “Build Me Up Buttercup” and more—that will make rolling out of bed and strapping on your running shoes so much less painful. Enjoy, friends!

(Pssst: If you’re wondering what the heck Run to Work Day is, you can find out everything you need to know here.)

group run

Tomorrow, tomorrow! We’re running tomorrow! That’s right, friends—Philly’s inaugural Run to Work Day is just about here, and we are beyond amped.

Just a quick heads up that there will be a few running groups gathering tomorrow morning that are open to anyone who wants to hoof it to work en masse. The Run to Work Day team (oh, how official we sound!), along with some pals, will be leading four groups from various starting points around the city. We’ll be leaving from each of these spots at 7:45 tomorrow morning, to give everyone enough time to clean up and change before heading to the office at 9.

Guys, we are less than 48 hours away from Philly’s inaugural Run to Work Day. Can you feel the excitement in the air?!

All signs point to the fact that we’re going to have an EPIC showing for this first-ever region-wide event, and I couldn’t be happier. Hundreds of readers have signed on to our Facebook invite in solidarity, and I’ve heard from several businesses throughout the region who are encouraging their employees to run to the office on Friday. How cool is that?

Several of you have asked questions about some of the logistics for the day, so I thought a post tackling all of them at once would be useful. If there are any queries I missed, feel free to add them in the comments and I’ll get right back to you. Capisce?

Eeee! The inaugural Run to Work Day Philly is this Friday, friends! Based on your Twitter and Facebook chatter, it seems you’re all as excited to hit the road as we are.

Your Weekend Workout Playlist: An Ode to The O.C.

the oc

This week’s workout playlist comes to you courtesy of the teen soap opera of ALL teen soap operas—drumroll, please—The O.C. Not only did the series provide tons of inspiration for how to rock a yellow Juicy Couture track suit (so glad those days are over) and inappropriately channel teenage angst, the show also expanded our iTunes library, thanks to all the great music it featured. Anyone else remember when Seth mentioned Death Cab for Cutie and then, like, four minutes later they were every 16-year old’s favorite band?

So, for this week’s workout playlist we’ve got a two-hour long ode to The O.C., filled with songs and bands that appeared on the show. Now, let the nostalgia commence.
