HILLS!!!

I did "THE HILL" today and added an extra 3/4 mile to my usual run, but with more hills. I figured if I didn't get it in now I probably wouldn't get it in at all, and I started thinking about today's festivites (Hores races at Del Mar) and I know I won't be THAT good as far as food and drink goes, and I wouldn't go running tomorrow because I'd be too tired. I'd just put it off again. So, I ran the hills in the humidity, came back drenched in sweat and hot, only to find my grandson playing with his Hotwheels cars on his Spiderman Slip N' Slide (remember those?)... So I joined him, still in my running garb. It felt so good!

Peace

Paul Simon!

And it's so freakin' hot these days. I went out at 6 and still felt sticky within a few strides. Good for you to take on hills in this heat.

This may be the first time you listed a song that I actually knew! Good choice. Good job on the hill workout! Back in the summer of '78, I had vacation accrued but being recently separated from my then husband, I couldn't afford to go on a trip. I took the Amtrak from Orange County to Del Mar with a friend and we had a fun day, including going to the track. I bought a Christmas ornament there of a Santa on a train (for the Amtrak) and I still have it. :-)
