Weekly Hill Workout: It Only Takes A Spark...

....to send them heading for the flatlands!
It was a beautiful late-summer November day as Jonathan Thurley, Mike Weyandt, Ken Davis, Bob Cornwall, John Domico, Tom Cali, Jim Moore, Esther Prins, Costas Maranas, and Super-Sub Nick Downs headed for Sparks St. When they reached the hill, Jim Myers and John Sheakoski had already made their mark--Sheakoski, who had five hills behind him, left a nice trail of sweat splatter to guide our climb. Lance Bland made a last minute arrival to the main event. As per usual, a large contingent, (who I will refer to by pseudonyms out of (lack of respect)), including Whiny, Schweaty, and Girly, reached ground zero and just kept on going. By employing some minor harassmental techniques, I was able to convince Cornwall, Thurley, and Downs to join us for one hill. Thurley also reported post-run at Rec Hall that he ran another repeat on the way back--effectively doubling his hill workout for the day. The rest of our crew did six repeats, except for Ken (this hill is for sissies) Davis, who, at last count, had put in 12 repeats, which I would think would get a little repetitive, but that's just me.....
Anyway, I hope to see some of you tomorrow or Wednesday--but if not, have a great holiday and good luck on all those Turkey Trots!
