Hills reflect your personality

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Yesterday went for a run after work. I had to pick up DS at 6:30 p.m. so by 7p.m. I was changed and on the road. Started off pretty slow - took me about 1hr to warm up. I'm getting old, it used to take 30 minutes. Went up some hills and felt like I actually lifted as I went up as opposed to plodding up them. Got into this very important internal discussion -
"what does the way a person come down a hill say about their personality". This was deeeeep. I come down the hill - at the same pace I went up or do the flat. When I'm on the bike - I come down very slowly - pressing brakes throughout. My bike riding partner on the other hand - comes down the hill without brakes - he gets a thrill out of it. I had a GF who came down the hill and crashed. So we have conservative, impetuous and reckless.

Got up this morning and went running again. I have DS' soccer game this evening. It was a nice run - I had no more earth-shattering thoughts during this run.

Running brings clarity to life.

    I would be on the Conservative side myself with a little bit of daredevil. . Probably my age. I know how fragile our bodies are. emoticon

    Glad you are getting your running in. I bet the views are amazing!
