                  I listen to all kinds of music when running, depending on mood and type of run.  I prefer instrumental music for harder workouts so I don't catch myself singing along.  Here are 10 faves:


                  Surfing With The Alien - Joe Satriani ( I still remember being blown away when I first heard this one back in the late 80s)

                  Golden Wheels - Gamalon (named in honor of the old Buffalo Bills wide receiver Elbert Dubenion)

                  Mach 1 - Ronnie Montrose

                  Flight Of The Osprey - Steve Morse

                  Machine - Andy James

                  Ghost Runner - Derek Sherinian

                  Free - Vinnie Moore

                  Cliffs Of Dover - Eric Johnson

                  Astro Cortex - Ozric Tentacles

                  Outa-Space - Billy Preston


                  For some heroic, soundtrack-style music (aka trailer music) check out Epic Score.  Guaranteed to get you moving.

                  One of these days is none of these days.

                  ~ H.G. Bohn

                  Doc, my tooth hurts

                    I really only listen to music to get me through, at most, the last half of a quality run(tempo long run). Sometimes I will listen to it if I'm tired on a recovery day, it just seems to hurt a little less.  I find that a lot music that I love doesn't really get me going on a run, hence why this is exclusively metal.
