BEST SOUNDTRACK FOR RUNNING

I started running at 6am in the basement. It's lonely down there, staring at the cement floors and storage boxes. What would really help is a good workout mix. I need a good variety of songs, lots of upbeat tempos. Suggestions please.

gosh, you're up late. i'm up late. and i run at 6 am, too, sista. when i run alone, i listen to the "hot 100"--i think that's what it's called...so not the norm of what i listen to that it keeps me on my toes...it's just all the pop new stuff. a friend of mine made me a mix and i'm hooked, though i need some new stuff so i hope others leave some great tunes in the comments here too. i think runnersworld.com has a section of running music. love you and miss you both so much:)

I'll have to email you some stuff (or at least a list)... I can't wait to be able to run again, it's the only time I get to listen to non-kid music anymore.

the entire GirlTalk album! Just listening to it makes my behind shed pounds :)

hmm, anything 80's really seems to do the trick for me - try Pandora.com, just enter in a song that rocks your workout and they'll make a whole playlist out of it.

I found it in my shape mag and I have not been disappointed.

Condoleezza Rice was on Jay Leno the other night and said how she loved to work out to Led Zeppelin. I've never done it, but I plan to next time I work out! I can't deal with the pop stuff.

Thank you to everyone for the great music suggestions. Brandi sent me a great CD with tunes that get her going. If only there really was a CD that made my behind shed pounds like Courtney's.
Now if only I could hire someone to come over to my house at 5:30 a.m., point an AK47 in my face and demand that I get out and run - that would be really effective.
