Great hard rock running album. the pace of the songs seems to match exactly what you need as well.

Also, 'You Are a Runner and I am My fathers Son" By Wolf Parade. BAM! Beat that appropriateness, everyone.

Y'all are too literal.

The Go! Team's Thunder, Lightning, Strike makes for a good running album.

It's kind of hard to make a running mix for someone else. For me, it's just a bunch of songs that I really like. Doesn't really matter the tempo.
