Exhibit B nails it. I'm not really in terribly too much pain, but I wasn't trying to smile anymore. My only thought was just to get to the finish line.
Let's be honest, here. The best part of these photos is the sweet Oiselle hat I'm wearing. Yay!
After some somber, thoughtful, moving moments at the Memorial Day 5k, I ran a decent pace through a wildly hilly course. I finished in 32:23. Not great, but not awful.
The major hill in this town (home to my alma mater) is one-way in almost all directions for cars. In college, it was this hill that made poor drivers the fool du jour when their stick shift skills couldn't keep them from stalling out.

So hills and strength training are on the menu as we say g'bye to May and hello to June, welcoming the longer days.
Anyone have any favorite hill workouts to share? What about other training that has helped you conquer hills? I am ALL EARS!
