Playlist: 2012 Sawtooth Relay

Soon Amber and I will be joining my sister Ev and her husband Brian along with our close friends Paul & Jolyne for the 2012 Sawtooth Relay in Idaho.  It is a 60 mile race, each runner responsible for running approximately two 5 mile legs.  As a team (Run DMK) we've been tossing around the idea of everyone contributing songs that'll keep the relay van thumpin' with tunes that motivate us and capture the moment.  Here is my list.  A song for each mile.  Songs from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's, & 10's.  Nearly every genre covered from hip-hop to country to electronic to metal and everything in between.  Here you go:
