The Hills

28 Apr

I wish i was talking about the fabulous LC and Lo but unfortunately my adventures today including hill repeat drills and not gossiping about Heidi and Spencer.


I HATE HILLS.

Now you know how I really feel.

I’m attempting to get back into a running groove, slowly but surely.  I have my two 5ks coming up and I would like to kick some booty for at least one of them.  Thus my need to work in some speed and hill work into my training plan.  Somehow I talked my BFF into joining me for the fun.

I got in my car after work today and headed for Flag Pole Hill Park, outfitted with my water bottle and a measuring cup full of grapes.

I’m not really sure why I looked so angry, I really enjoyed my grapes, they were an excellent snack in rush hour traffic.

I got their first so I figured self portraits were the perfect way to waste some time until my BFF arrived.  Check out our hill…

It doesn’t look like much but I swear it was steep.  This has to be one of the steepest hills in Big D, love the prairieland!  If I were a smarter person I would have taken a photo at the bottom.  Oops.

We ran up and down the hill six times and it was on the verge of brutal.  I’d like to add one or two more rounds each time I go back.  I intend to become BFFs with Flag Pole Hill over the next few months.

Embrace the hills, love the hills, become the hills.

Victory was so ours you guys.

We were stavin’ like whoa after that so we met up with our other bestie for some deliciousness at Fuzzy’s Tacos.  They have the best queso, I could eat it like soup.

For dessert… mini gummy bears!  Aren’t they precious?!

    I need some HILLS before my trip to San Diego… I just need to buckle down and bust them out. If you’re ever partner-less for the hills, let me know. 😉
