Runner’s World Quote for Today (May 7, 2009)

Today’s quote (which was waiting for me when I got home from my run) was…

Many People shy away from hills. THey make it easy on themselves, but that limits their improvement. The more you repeat something, the stronger you get.

Joe Catalano

As my body cools down (it was a balmy 76 degrees and humid while I was out this morning) I think back over the hills I tackled this morning (small hills if you are from a place that really HAS hills… but hills) and smile.  You do get stronger… and it does get easier.

And I think about my hills at work… the hills that I’m facing a lot with my project coming due in just a couple weeks… and I realize that is the case their too.  I watch the people who shy away from the hills… the ones who work at avoiding hills at all costs or trying to push hills into other people’s path… and I realize that, more and more, running is really starting to be my metaphor for life…
