Running Beginners Series Question No. 3 - Best Running Music?

Choosing music for running is a worthwhile time investment. Right music can keep you focused and even inspire you to continue running. Music is also has a proven track record of picking you up when you are down.

 

No the question is, "What's the best or good running music?"

 

I hope you won't mind sharing your experience!

    I found jogfm.com very helpful if finding music at the right pace for me.  I also run a faster pace at the beginning and slow down as I go, but try and have a faster song at the end of my run to push me.
