A bright and early run in SF's Pacific Heights with a running buddy made me want to cheer, "Viva hills!" and reminded me that SF is an extraordinary place for runners.
We did a nice and mellow warm-up loop which, by the way, included a few hills. Then we attacked Baker Street with one minute at a fast pace, two minutes to jog down and recover, and then back up. I felt very strong on the first three repeats. It was hard to stay focused on the fourth. I definitely worked hard on repeat #5 and was rewarded with a wowzers view of Palace of Fine Arts and the bay. Afterwards, I enjoyed a well-deserved latte at Martha Brothers.
