Looking up

Just a slight incline

was once the dreaded, "bitch hill".

Now, almost welcomed.

Many times over the last few years, my forever friend, Janice and I have walked along Turkey Creek. When we first began walking this trail, this seemingly unimposing hill HURT us. We prepared for it as we approached, saying, "ok, here comes the bitch hill" and huffed and puffed as we crested, perhaps with a bit more drama than necessary. Now, we hardly notice it. Even as we walked the last time, Janice questioned if we'd just topped the hill...as if it hadn't dawned on her. It hadn't dawned on me, either and before we know it, we'll probably be jogging it. We're such studs. :)
