1st Long Run of the New Year

It's been a few weeks since I've put in an 8 miler and I'm feeling pretty good about getting it done. 

Even more of an accomplishment is that the first half was uphill. It was really challenging and I stopped a bit but I did good. The reward was the fast downhill all the way back.

Workout summary:
2 miles easy
2 miles hill climb
1 mile recovery
2 miles race pace (under 9 min/mile)
1 mile cool down

I must embrace the love of hills to get through The Rut. 

Anyone have any great hill running tips or music suggestions?
