Today I found the largest hill near my house (Hunter Station near the W & OD) – I ran down it full speed and then ran up it with just as much vigor. Why did I do this? Because I was literally afraid to run up this hill. I see cyclists climb it all the time – it does not look easy on a bike – so it must be harder on foot. I was worried that this hill would be stronger than me – that I would have to give up and walk. I didn’t and in doing this realized that a hill is only hard if you are afraid of it.
Heartbreak Hill here I come….
