I seem to run naturally at about an 88/175bpm cadence, so these are songs that fit that. Some of them force me to run a bit faster, some allow me to ease off.

They’re just random finds. Songs that I stumbled across, or that I’ve accumulated over the year. Often, they’re songs that people listened to labs that I’ve worked in, or songs that people have given me. Most of them have some kind of memory attached, or an association with someone.

They’re not songs that I’d necessarily choose to listen to usually, they’re songs that are about the right speed for me to run to. I need to find some more, but these will keep me going for now.
