-Okay…legs are a bit tired from yesterday’s workout. But I should be able to manage this.
-They are not hills actually. They are mounds of opportunity.
-At least that’s what I like to tell myself.
-Hill repeats are definitely more fun with friends.
-Actually you know what would be great? If there was a live band out here at 5 AM. Kind of like those Rock n Roll races, to cheer me to the top.
-Well that, and pizza.
-Starting off downhill…wheeee! Always fun.
-I kind of wish my body liked downhill races. Great for a half, but a full marathon bombing down a canyon at 9,000 feet of elevation!? Rough.
-Big Cottonwood flashbacks.
-Alright, time to turn around and head back up.
-Oh…body don’t fail me now.
-Pump those arms. Pump pump pump.
-Focus on the top.
-Ugh, feeling slow. Okay pick up those feet. Quick feet.
-Crank up the tunes, you’ve got this.
-Good thing I’m both a fitness instructor and an only child. I’m pretty good at talking to myself and pumping myself up.
-Okay, there is my friend in the distance. Catch up to her. Race up the hill.
-Ahhh…the top. This view is the best place to be.
-And time to do it all over again. A few times.
-Coffee sounds good. Mmm…that RUNrise.
What are some of your thoughts on the run…when you’re running HILLS?

“They are mounds of opportunity” is the best thing I have read on WordPress all day!!!
hahaha why thank you!!
RUNrise! Run-and-rise or run-to-rise? 😁
Hill repeats are so fun and I just focus on doing them instead of talking too much to myself. Maybe not the best approach but works for me 😉
Well I’m the most girly of girls. We talk to ourselves a lot 🙂 🙂 I rise and RUN…always 😉 Thanks for visiting and reading kind sir! Take care.
Keep rising and keep running. Loved your thought-full post 🙂
Don’t look up don’t look up don’t look up damn it I looked up
My brain is much more of a rollercoaster on hill repeats. “Don’t die, don’t die, don’t die!” on the way up and “Oh know, down isn’t as easy as I thought it was going to be” on the way down…
Yass rollercoaster seems fitting!!
