This weekend I joined the Bob to run our favorite 6 miles of hills out at Percy Warner. I stumbled across a site that has some awesome pictures of where we run. Go check it out here. I'm very unlikely to ever run the Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon, but I love getting out there about once a month to get a good hill workout on my legs. I can't imagine running 26.2 miles out there. The 6 I do just about gets me every time. There is one hill that goes up for well over half a mile. By the time I get to the top, I feel amazing that I made it all the way up, but I also feel out of breath and have to stop to drink some water.
On the way home, we had to take a detour. I realized once we came out of the neighborhood that we had to cut through that we were on the same road as the Krispy Kreme. So I asked Bob, "If the hot sign is on, we're stopping, right?" He looked at me. We crested the hill. We saw that bright red sign. He turned on the blinker.
I have to say - getting a free, hot donut after a run is AWESOME. I was tempted to get a few more, but since I only ran 6 miles I resisted.
But let me just say... it's a good thing that Krispy Kreme isn't close enough to home to stop by more often. I'd have to start running ultras!
