Whether you’re training for a marathon, or just hitting the treadmill, good music can often make the difference between a rave run and a blown goal. That’s why we’re putting together 90-minute playlists each month chock-full of songs with enough of a beat to keep you moving. 

October is possibly the best month for running. The weather is getting cool, the leaves in the Northeast are turning—making everything look scenic and beautiful—and if you have a race coming up this fall, you've put in a lot of the hard work from the summer months, and you’re beginning to see the fruits of your progress.

But if you’re training for a half or full marathon, you’re likely heading into some very long weekend runs—so good tunes are more important than ever. Here’s a mix of some of our latest favorites, all with enough of a beat to keep your feet pounding down the path.
