I tried....

 Famous last words- "I tried". I've always been an adventurer! I love new places, new challenges, and new ideas. I like to give new things a try....you?
  I can't remember where I read this idea but one elite marathoner said for strength and speed training they find a hill that takes 7 minutes to run up at nearly all out pace. Well...that's hard! I have more than enough hills but 7 minutes is an eternity! I managed 3:15 on my first try before I had to pull up...however, that was the best time I ever posted coming up that hill!
  I finished my 8 mile run with my head up and my time down! So two 8 milers this week.....maybe tomorrow off and another 8 miler Friday? Maybe I should run 57 miles in honor of my birthday on Friday?......let me think about that....uh...NO!
  Hope you are well! Try something new today! Peace!

Sounds like hard work on the hill, well done! Next year I'm 50 and I'm still thinking what run to do. 50 minutes sounds good right now.:)
