7 Hills Rd

Drove 45 miles south to do this run on a road called 7 hills.
The road is 8 miles in length and it has 7 major hills in that
8 mile stretch. Running down some of these was just as hard as
going up because you had to do some breaking just to keep from
going out of control. This was a hard run. I was breathing hard
from the start. I was thinking to myself what have I got myself
into. As the run went on I settled down a bit. Never really found
much of a rhythm though. Soon as you would start to feel good
then you would have to climb another hill. Overall I'm happy with
this run. Got a late start and the sun was at full force. At least
it was not humid. Will do this run again just not in the near future.
The picture of the hills does not do it justice. Windmills were all
over the place. Kind of neat.
