There wasn't any particular reason this was a good run. I ran up a hill in my neighborhood that has a nice gradual incline. I don't particularly like hills, but I know that they are critical to being a well-rounded runner (and a less-round individual!) so I've added them into my routine as of late. I powered up the 3 miles of hill and felt pretty darn good. I had to walk a few times but wasn't down on myself for that, which is a rare occurrence. Usually I beat myself up for walking breaks, but I didn't this time. I think I must have been in a good mood this morning!

The real fun started when I turned around and looked down at the valley waiting for me. Nothing but smooth sailing from then on. I felt like I was running so fast! It felt good to get a nice stride going and just cruise down the hillside. Here's a quick snapshot from the run:

Also, the ever so lovely Julia from Pain, Pride and Perseverance tagged me in the super awesome Q&A game going around bloggerland.
So, get excited. You get to ask me any series of questions and I have to answer! Oh boy, this ought to be interesting. If you're a reader that doesn't typically comment, now is your time to join the fun and ask me something you want to know--could be anything! I look forward to seeing what you all come up with. Or maybe I don't...this could be scary! :)
