Songs for hills

steep-gradeHills. The doctor called yesterday, and he prescribed hills.

So I did hills.

I ran with the East Nasty Running Group and I tend to ditch the headphones when other people are around, so I ran the hills sans beats. It cured what was ailing me (thanks, Doc.) but had I brought the tunes, I would have put on this playlist produced precisely for a challenging, gritty, lovely hill workout.
