Neo-Soul Running Music Mix icon
For those of you looking for a more soulful run, I have put together a playlist of some of my favorite "neo-soul" and new R&B tunes. In general songs that fall into this category (and dance as well) are unlikely to be in the 145-185 optimum BPM range for running. But these tunes are runnable (I had to roadtest this mix a couple times), although they often are run double-time. But they all have a strong double-beat (not sure what that's called) and work well for running.

Artist's for the mix include India.Arie, Cody Chesnutt, Jill Scott, Anthony Hamilton, Remy Shand, Lauren Hill, Res, Jill Scott, Alicia Keys and others.
