Tour of HILLS! "Nice" Hill included!

Meet Mile long hill!  It's a nice, LONG...about a mile and twists around...this is the beginning!


Me...2/3 done with Mile Long Hill!


Oh and here is the start...of "Nice" Hill...about .80 mile long.  "Nice" Hill meet my bloggy friends!



STEEP....


And it turns to go up more...it's the steepest hill around my area...I think!  Straight up is what it feels like.
Me feeling good at the end of my run...had a successful, unplanned date with "NICE" hill and felt good.

2.9.10 Stats:
Miles: 7.50
Pace: 10:39
Time: 1:19:51
Calories Burned: 976

916.07 - 7.50 = 908.57 miles left to run in 2010

I really wanted to do 7 miles but wasn't sure if I would get all 7 done with my route...but I did.  I was at 6.90 when I came to the start of "Nice" hill and realized I would have to run "Nice" hill and didn't want to stop in the middle so figured I would run the entire thing and was glad I did...got an extra 1/2 mile in.  Felt great the whole run which was a lot better than Monday's two runs. 

I have started bringing my phone if I run for over an hour just for safety but realized after looking at mom vs. marathon's blog that I could take pictures while I run...GREAT IDEA!  It was great to take my mind of hard hills as I took pictures...how fun!  I am a picture GAL so it works great for me.  Another really fun way to document my journey!

I was battling my HILL today also. I have a love/hate relationship with them, they break monotony of a long run but boy, do they kill my legs.
Great job though. Looks like you had tons of fun.

GOOD job Jilly! I am going to call you Hilly Jilly :)

I did Hill repeat sprints today, but looks like I need to come to your neighborhood for some training.

I love that you call it "nice" hill, as if you can sweet-talk it. LOL! Thanks for the mention. :)
