Walking music

January 8, 2010

Every wonder what songs are played during the opening and closing ceremonies at the Avon Walk?  I found an iMix list on iTunes of songs that someone put together of the greatest hits, primarily those played at the finish line before closing ceremonies.

You can see the list here: or open iTunes and search the iMix section for Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

There are a total of 47 songs from artists ranging from Goo Goo Dolls to Liz Phair to Tina Turner.

New walkers want to know about using iPods/MP3 players during the walk.  The answer is “No”.  For safety reasons walkers are asked not to use anything that would prevent them for hearing instructions, traffic, etc while walking.  The walk route is not blocked off. Depending in which city you walk, you may be walking on heavily trafficked streets.  For example, in NY the walk takes you through a good part of Manhattan and a section of Brooklyn.  The number of streets crossed is too many to count.  And being from NY, I can tell you, the taxis and cars do not yield for pedestrians, even though they are supposed to stop.

I have found that chatting with fellow walkers is one of the best parts of the walk.  You end up starting to talk while waiting at an intersection and continue the conversation while you walk a bit.  Then you meet someone new to speak with.  I’ve met people from all over the country and many other countries this way.
