    Near the turn-around in Cleveland they were playing "I will Survive!"  Seemed appropriate!

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    I actually listen to audio books. I find the music distracts me in such a way that my pace gets messed up. Don't know why but music doesn't work for me. I have a large collection of audio books of all sorts. I run about 40 miles a week and listen to them more than half of the time.

    No music. Can't stand something stuck in my ear or the lack of awareness they bring. BUT.. I do have songs rolling thru that thick skull of mine. AC/DC, U2, generally anything fast or uplifting. Save the slow stuff for when I'm on the porch at the end of the day with a tall weiss beer....

    I like to put my i-Pod on shuffle when I run alone and listen to a lot of Jimmy Buffett and Neil Young. Here's something new to try "Asa Branca" featuring David Byrne by Forro In The Dark from their album "Bonfires of Sao Poao" , check it out in I-Tunes world music. It's Brazilian in English and Portugese with a great running beat, it will get your heart pumping.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    I'm on pace with beerpace. I tried running with an iPod - music and NPR - but after two or three minutes, I yanked the ear things out and felt much better.  I like the sound of my own breathing and footsteps and what's going on around me. I see so many people, walkers and runners, with their heads plugged into some other world. It's a new society. I can't do it for some reason.

    I'm with Yo-sal and Beer Pace.  You're my kind of runner.  Your ears are for protection.  Not that I don't like music.  I have a 10 speaker infinity system in my minivan.  Today I listened to Madonna (Ray of Light).  Tomorrow, the Rolling Stones Beggar's Banquet CD. Next will be Coldplay's Rush of Blood and an Acustic CD.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    If runners ever had any money on them , the ones with headphones would be great targets. I could use a new pair of shoes.. maybe I'll tackle the next guy with nice shoes and an ipod...he'll never hear me coming. I'll let him keep the ipod, though.

    go for the ones with the zombie look. It's a "dead" giveaway that they won't even notice that their money's gone.

    Re: favorite running song(s)? - You'll love this

    After watching one of my favorite movies (Friday Night Lights) for the hundredth time, I noticed how inspiring and motivating the music is. And I finally found out where that music came from - an instrumental band from Texas named "Explosions in the Sky". Check them out - beautiful music to run to. No lyrics, but it definitely makes me feel good.

    With 2 and 1/2 hours of classic, Roth era Van Halen loaded on the ipod any song is awesome.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    Pompano Beach,FL (7/6/07) a jogger was hit by a choo choo train while plugged into her iPod. Both legs severed. Must of been some good music to drown out a train.Your head should be on a swivel at all times, especially while listening to toons...
