Awesome!!!!

This "appeals" to me because 1) I still don't know what cadence is (which I should go look up, um, NOW) and 2) anything that's over 4 minutes long that I can listen to on Long runs? Sounds PERFECT! :)

Good luck on the race!!!

J said...

omg this is so cool! I need to look into this because it sounds so awesome!

D10 said...

Another race! I was wondering when you were lacing up for another one.

I love the cadence thing - it really makes trying to meet a certain rpm more fun than running to a metronome ;)

I just started following them on twitter too.

Happy mini-taper!

appeals to me because my running slows down and speeds up to my regular music. i'd like to give it a shot with sometihng set at a particular cadence. :-)

M-Rah said...

This appeals to me because I've read that running at a certain cadence will reduce shin splints and stress fractures!! I really want to get back into running and maybe this will help reduce my injuries. :)

I had no idea this company/service even existed. When training for my marathon a few years ago, I ran w/out my iPod one day & my splits were so much faster. It made me realize that I subconsciously run to the beat of the music.

And I don't have alot of 'fast' music that will keep me on pace, so this would be a great service for me to use!

Morgan said...

I don't twitter but I am very interested to check this out. I know how motivating music can be (Black eyed peas anyone?!?!). Rock on Runners!!!

B.o.B. said...

Awesome concept. I listened to some of the music on there and could really see myself running to it. Especially at the treadmill!

Good luck on the 30K Saturday!

Fair Weather Runner said...

okay i want to try this because i NEED to get faster, and nothing seems to be working. so sign me up!

lindsay said...

very cool deal!

since i don't run with music (or own an mp3/ipod) i'll skip out on this one, just letting you know so i don't steal a good offer from someone who could benefit! :)

Irish Cream said...

Oh my gosh, sign me up! I want to try it because I am SO sick of my current playlist, I can't even listen to it anymore!

sneakersister said...

I've never heard of Hella Sound. How did you learn of it? A 30 minute song list sounds wonderful, especially when all of my music seems so stale lately.

aron said...

because i have met him a couple times in person and he's very cool :) hehe

also i have heard awesome things about this!!!

EricaH said...

it sounds really interesting I am forever changing my playlist so maybe this would be the right thing to get me out of that habit.
Thanks for stopping by and letting me know about it. :)

and i linked back in my great giveaways post. :)

Janice {Run Far} said...

I am going to go follow hellasound after this post....

It appeals to me because I am sick of listening to my daughters Hannah Montana and High School Musical soundtracks. I washed my ipod back in June and have not yet hooked myself up with a new one. Thus... the 8yr old type music.

Lisa said...

Hella Sound appeals to me because I think it would help me stick to a set pace. Currently I only listen to podcasts, which are entertaining, but don't give that extra energy that comes from a great song with a good beat.

RoadBunner said...

I love HellaSound. The music really gets you running and synced into a particular pace! I also like that the tracks are 30 min long. Sometimes it is hard to build a playlist for a run with shorter tracks.
