Here's a product idea for you.

Beatstreet - A music player for runners where they can control the tempo

How about a mp3 like player (it would play midi files primarily) that has the ability to change tempo. The midi tunes would play for as long as the runner wants. Ideally, it would change rhythm upon request, but seemlessly integrate it with the current beat.

I call them 'rhythms' as they would be very repetitive and motivating, like a good Moby song or dance beat.

Research shows runners reach their best times listening to music they enjoy. What about music that increases their rhythm?

As Ethan Lowry points out, if Nike's new ipod included this feature, it "would be incredibly cool".
