rediscovering the Beatles1 cd and finding every song is great for running. Even the songs I think of as quieter - Hey Jude or Eleanor Rigby - have a good beat and they get me singing along

Running Songs

Bill Conti's "Gonna Fly Now", "Fanfare for Rocky", and "Going The Distance" are GREAT to run to. I find myself pressing repeat on "Going The Distance"!

Running songs

I just started running with a shuffle. It is very new but addictive! Songs really get me through the rough mid miles on a 9 mile run. I only look at my time/ mileage every 4 songs.

Who says Christian music is boring

TobyMac, Press Play, KJ52, Skillet, Anberlin and Manic Drive are just some of the artists I listen to when I'm running. There is no shortage of high energy with these artists.

Running in Rhythm music

Struggled to find my pace and found the tracks from run2rhythm great to help me get my pace back. I'm running faster and longer and I use their recommended 5K mixes. Very happy with my results and the music is great to listen to on my runs.

Mash up

I like to run to the Mash-Up "All Day" from the mix-master Girl Talk. This mash up smoothly transitions between about 120 songs. Lots of hip hop and old tunes you forgot you loved. It just keeps going and going, and it's a free download!

I am a Podrunner junkie. DJ Steveboy sets the BPM and I can go from there.
