My search for new music just got a bit easier. I recently stumbled across the best site for getting upbeat running mixes, rockmyrun.com.
The mixes are free to download and easy to add to itunes and your ipod! All you have to do is search their site for different playlists, download, and drag to your itunes. You can search by genre and playlist length. You can see and hear the whole track list so you know every song on the playlist. Each playlist will also give you a BPM (beats per minute) so you know how upbeat the songs are. Here are some of my faves:
