she gave me headphones / said ‘have you heard this sound?’


This is one of my favorite hard-fought views in Colorado, and how I started my morning. The Incline is an abandoned railroad track, and by climbing the ties you can ascend 2000+ feet up the side of the mountain, then run a few miles down Barr Trail. Kicks your ass in the best way.

This Cut Chemist tune is probably the only thing that got me up those last few dozen steps to the top; it came on my shuffle at just the right time. Dancing on steep inclines is dangerous, kids.

What’s The Altitude (feat Hymnal) – Cut Chemist

Cut Chemist has a new globally-infused album out (mostly Latin, African) called The Sound of the Police.

  • Hey Heather,
    Your blog came up in my Google e-mail search for all things “Manitou Incline.” I like it. I run a web site,, for runners, riders, hikers and climbers (your know, Incline people). Lots of folks out there jamming to their iPods etc… while they motor down the road or up the trail. So I had a wild idea. Join my site (it’s social, like Facebook) write a short blog every week about music that people run/ride/climb to. You could get killer readership. And you can link back to your “I Am Fuel, You Are Friends” site. Content posted on is spread via FB and Twitter to many, many more people. Could be cool….a music blog for runners, riders, hikers and climbers. My business partner, Brian McCarrie and I, are all about community … everybody says it, but we’re busting our butts to make it happen.
    Can we work together?
    Thanks for any consideration and happy Incline climbing :)

  • This truly is making me want to move to CO. And I will in a little over a year.
    Thank you so very much, for inspiring me, yet again.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
