F**k hills.

"I do today what others won't so I can do tomorrow what others cant."

Well, I know where to go when I need a quick interval workout! I decided to go explore the new neighborhood today instead of heading over to River Legacy.

Riding through Interlochen... I knew it was going to be a long ride when I hit 33mph coasting down a hill. Getting back up 15% grade fucking sucked. There were some other 11% and 12% hills in there also.

Hills really show me how out of shape I am I hit 190bpm at one point.

Here's a google maps shot of one of the hills. Notice the house out there is flat (enough)... it's not a tilted camera.

you dont know shit about hills till you've run the habu trail here in oki or run the hills back in pendleton

My whipped ice dairy drink brings the attention of females to my place of residence and/or employment, and it far surpasses that of yours. Absolutely, it surpasses yours. I can convey to you this recipe, but I have to demand compensation.
