The other day I ran a 4-mile race in Central Park. I haven't run a road race in 3 years. It is exhilarating to get back into jogging.
Anyways, the hills there slow me down (think turtle).
While crawling up one particularly bad incline, I see a group of (albeit younger) runners just zipping past me.
I don't run Central Park very much because I live and run in the Bronx. I'm familiar with the hills in my neighborhood, and have conquered them. It's the unfamiliar hills in Central Park that throw me for a loop.
On another note, when I returned home from the race, my Mr6 asked me if I won the race. Ha. He's funny.
