Magical Moment 460, "Finishing Uphill"

There are a couple running routes that Joy and I tackle. The 3 main ones I choose from are the Long route, the Short route, and the Hard route. The Hard route is full of hills. And just when we think we're done with our work out and we're home free, there is one last enormous hill to conquer. A hill so steep, long, and winding, that the sidewalk has been turned into stairs for pedestrians.

But once we've made it to the top, it feels so good. I praise Joy and tell her what a good girl she is. I just think it's a great way to finish a run. Not an easy way. But then again, most things worth doing never are.

(This is the first half of the hill, the second is beyond that curve)

I admire your stick-to-it-iveness, Elizabeth. When I was younger...much younger...I used to do a two-mile round-trip jog from my house trailer in the country to town and back. There was a hill on that route that I found very difficult, but it was much shorter than the one you're conquering with Joy. Your drive and determination will carry you far.

The fact that you RUN just amazes me to begin with.....Jealous.
