Running + iTunes = Cadence?

18 Jul

I can not live without music when I run. It’s truly what helps set my pace and keeps me pumped throughout my run (while keeping my mind off the pain of it all). I’ve recently put together a “run playlist” that I think is pretty solid. The only problem with my playlist…. when I run everyday, listening to the same 10 songs gets old pretty fast. To solve this problem, I wondered is “there an app for that?!”  Fortunately, I came across Cadence in the App Store.  So far, so good in helping me better organize my running music!


The deal: You set your desired Beats Per Minute (BPM) and Cadence picks out the music that matches the beat. There is also an additional desktop which will analyze the BPM of your music, this way you can create playlists based on how much you want to move! The app is $4.99 and the desktop is a donation of your choosing where 20% goes to charity (desktop at:

What songs MUST make an appearance in your running playlist? Do you have any experiences with this app?

    That’s a clever idea. Most of the music on my iPod is pretty laid back. I could use a little help building a playlist that’s good for running.

      I get bored with my music so quickly (especially since I’ve been running everyday). I’m hoping this will be what I’m looking for to help me stay motivated during my run… we shall see 🙂

    Thanks for visiting my blog!!! Yes – TRY the omelet. MAN it is good. Had to teach a 6 a.m. class and as soon as I walked in the door I was like: “Omelet. NOW.” Came together fast and was so so good after the workout. Cool blog!!!

    I change my workout music just about weekly, but right now it’s mostly hiphop & electronic. I hadn’t heard of this app before, but it sounds pretty cool though.
