Monsieur, I'll Take the Hills

I was in a vile mood this morning.  Let's just say it's a good thing my kids are back at the dayhome after yesterday's closure...and it's probably a good thing my work partner is sick today.  Missing my long run this weekend didn't help...and I probably needed it more than ever after a far too short weekend that included my cousin's funeral on Saturday and my kids waking up on Sunday super sick and extra grumpy.  This momma needed a release.

Luckily, I had a lunch date on my calendar with the lovely Tina. and hills were on the menu.

What is up with my face...and can y'all see how ridiculous that hill is?

We met up right at noon and headed out for a quick 1k warmup before we tackled the various hills of Southwood.  She let me vent about my week and together we chased away some grumpies and some crazies.

Six hills...three of those were killer.

And SLUSHY!  Holy hannah -  did last nights little snowfall ever make for a sloppy run.  But it was great to get out there and get mucky and work hard and get my brain into a better place again.   Now I can be a better employee and a much better momma.  

It was exactly what I needed.

We did one of the killer hills (where the 3k marker is) 3 times!


  1. If you look at your run graph sideways it looks like a scorpion.

  2. Yay for getting those done! I had hills for lunch today too, but not as scenic as yours. Running buddies are the best!
