Running to the Beat of the Tune

Do you listen to music while you run? I cannot go on a run without my ipod and armband. There is nothing better than a good upbeat song to push you through the last couple miles of a run. Normally I am a country fan when it comes to music. But, when it comes to running, no country for me! I like really upbeat music. Something that has a fast tempo that can help me pick up my pace on a run. When I run, I almost like angry music. When I run mad, I run so much faster! Lately, I have been in a music funk. I just am sick of the music I currently run to. I always love to hear what other runners listen to when they run and find out what motivates them.
I wanted to share some music that motivates me while I run. I would LOVE if you guys would leave comments about songs that you run to!

Kris Kross - 'Jump!'
Kelly Clarkson - 'Don't Let Me Stop You'

Lil Scrappy - 'Gangsta, Gangsta'

  1. I listen soley to Groove Electric by DJ Steve Boy... probably 1,200 miles on all his mixes so far.

    It doesn't seem that I can paste here, so Google "Groove Electric" and it comes right up.
