Hills. Ugh.

Why is it so hot and muggy here? Didn’t California know I was coming?

The high is supposed to be 72 and the low 55. That is the only weather I will accept. Get with the program California. And here I thought you were perfect. Hmph.

Don’t even get me started on the hills.

Mygodthehills. They’re everywhere. If I wanted to run up a hill, I would increase the incline on the treadmill which I’m not going to do because that’s just silly.

What I’m trying to say is, I ran. During that run, I took a turn on a street called Cerro, which was just a bad idea all together. Luckily, this was part of my view.

And that right there is how California tricks you into coming back for more.

I ran 2.5 miles (9:43 pace), stopped back at the house to walk a mile with mom, and then ran another 2.5 miles after I dropped her off. The second half was slower by 10 seconds. I felt super impressed with myself because I hated every hot, hilly minute of it. Even though it was split in two, I’m calling that my long run for the week.

  1. That gif dog is a genius. Who needs humans when you have cement?

    Hills are awful. I don’t trust anyone who claims to love them.

    I miss running so much. Ugh.

    Also, that weather is lightyears better than what we have here, and I’m guessing what you would have in Florida right now? So I shant feel sorry for you. I twon’t.

  3. Oh man, Evan sent me that dog gif the other day and I was mesmerized by it for about half an hour. Can not turn away.

    That view is gorgeous! But yeah, looks hilly. I just refuse to run up hills. I’ll walk or avoid altogether. Works out well.

  4. I just watched that dog gif for far too long. Well played.
