    Pandora has workout and fitness stations that have good upbeat music and you get an idea of all of them.

    You should check out the app "Rock my Run"- it is fabulous! You can choose different genres of music, and then they will give you a list of different types of mixes. I've been using this for the past week or so, and its great :-)

    I was just going to suggest Rock My Run! I am addicted...I love that there's so much to choose from and that new stuff is always being added. I've been a member since last fall, but became a "Premium" member in February. I think it was $36 for the year for the Premium membership, but I get 36 downloads (including premium mixes - which are over mixes that are over an hour in length). I love it and definitely think it was worth the cost.

    I found that anything hardstyle has a great tempo for running. Checkout an album called Reverze Call of the Visionary. It has a great mix of styles and artists.

    DJ's like Tiesto, Nico Pusch, DeadMau5, Format B and Simina Grigoriu should get you motivated......

    I would highly recommend any of the dubstep songs by this youtube user:

    Her album from 2012 is great for walking / running!

    I'm a huge fan of PodRunner. It's a great series of fixed and varied BPM mixes. I strongly recommend giving it a try no matter what kind of music you listen to, it'll get you in the groove and you won't be skipping around trying to find just the right song.

    I run to Deep House, uplifting trance etc.. I've recently purchased Kids in Glass Houses' new album (Peace) and I've really enjoyed running to it most of its tracks- even though it is not house.

    For long distance running I really NEED deep house though.. Those types of sets that would build up for a long time and will help me to get into my ZEN state of mind!

    I must admit.. I can run better when I'm listening to dubstep. If I'm having a frustrating day, I listen to chillstep.
    Not sure if you have tried that yet, but it might work for you. Not all music is good music to others, though hehe :P
