Running to the rhythym

SO, once again I am trying to get in shape. SO to do that I am walking/jogging daily. It is a very sad start, but hey….it’s a start. I am trying to compile the ultimate running setlist on the Ipod for this………I cant seem to get past the Jr. High urge to put all metal and hip hop to “pump me up”. And sometimes, this is a good idea……these songs are perfect after all. But there is MUCH more out there made for this as well. I like a song that “soars” or takes on a pulse of its’ own….driving you to the end. So, I NEED YOUR HELP. Can you suggest some tunes for this purpose?
Here is what I have so far:
Ashes- Embrace
Stronger- Kanye West
Wolf Like me- TV on the Radio
Numb/Encore- Linkin Park and Jay-Z
The Beautiful People- Marilyn Manson
Intergalactic- The Beastie Boys
Magnificent- U2
Rearview Mirror- Pearl Jam
Lose Yourself- Eminem
Clocks- Coldplay
Shamrocks & Shenanigans- House of Pain
Hypnotize- Notorious BIG
Idioteque- Radiohead
Heaven- Jars of Clay

Please….help me get some new stuff…..

So it's not music, but lately I've really enjoyed listening to sermon podcasts on my iPod while I run (and oftentimes it's a few sermons for those long runs). I've also really liked listening to audiobooks. I think partly it's the fact that I start thinking about what's being discussed which then distracts me from the physical discomfort I'm putting myself through. My favorite audiobook to listen to while running thus far has been "The Last Lecture". Just a thought...sorry I'm not much help on the music front, but please share your playlist when you find a good one!
