Podrunner is a fantastic podcast that produces music by BPM. Find info here http://www.djsteveboy.com/podrunner.html or you can search in iTunes for Podrunner. Really good mix of beats to keep you going and on track. High quality production and it is free. Steve does an awesome job!
You know what would be great, though, is if there was a program that could somehow scan my music library and sort it by BPM. Surely some runner/music-lover/programmer has come up with such a thing?
My favorite : MUSE -- I love anything they do.
On their latest album, I feel like I could run for hours, playing Uprising on a loop.
Black Eyed Peas
Rage Against The machine
System of a Down
Proud mama to Shawn (6) and Emily (3).

I like running to Armin van Buuren's A State of Trance 2010. It's beautifully compiled, high-energy music you can feel as you run. I've enjoyed many a run listening to it. His other A State of Trance compilations are good as well.

I can't run without music! A lot of my faves are one hit wonders from the 90's - it seems like people just weren't afraid to say whatever then and put it in a fast, fun, upbeat song.
A sample of my playlist:
I have some modern stuff on another playlist I use too:

Love the party mixes created by DJ Mick Boogie. It's like electronica/hip hop/ dance music for a continuous 50 minutes or so. I always listen to one in particular when I run in a race. Keeps my head in the race instead of feeling overwhelmed.
