Do visions of school-issued gym uniforms give you convulsions? Don't worry! We figured out a way to bring you the best of the back-to-school season without making you return (and, oy, some of us wouldn't want to go back there even if you paid us), How about a high energy playlist filled with autumn-y schoolyard vibes that you can listen to while revisiting the high school track and running the mile on your own terms this time? Frankly, that sounds a lot better than having to suffer through one more game of capture the flag.
