OOhhh yeah! On a mountain craze this past week but more is better, right!? Oh yeah!!
So basically I did the same run as last Friday with an extra 2km thrown in at the top for good measure, ‘cus ya know….mileage.
And a little extra climb too ‘cuz ya know mountain goat!
I am not the fastest or the strongest out there by any stretch of the imagination (and if I have anything it’s imagination!) but I do throw my heart into it 110% and I can be stupidly competitive at times! So whenever I am shlepping up the mountain and I hear somebody approaching and planning to overtake me, I just have to kick it up a level and make them work for it. I know it’s stupid, I just can’t help it! The guy who tried to pass me on the first climb NEVER stood a chance. I heard him coming, glanced back over my shoulder, saw that I had at least 10 years on him and decided it was one of those do you feel lucky , punk? moments. Oh yeah, I pushed it and then pushed it some more and with each switch back I saw him falling back more and more. The simple pleasures, what can I say SMH…
At the peak, worn out, tired but happy!
Nice fall colors setting in and a wonderfully peaceful trail up and down the mountain, through the woods with great views over the city.
18kms with 1,200 meters climbed all in all a wonderful afternoon jaunt!
Am I silly for being so competitive? Yeah, probably but hey I am not hurting anyone but myself!
Happy weekend everybody! Enjoy your runs! 😊
