i went back to the hill my wife and i ran repeats on last week. i wanted to see how bad it could be. pretty bad it turns out. i ran a little less than a mile before it got to the base of the one-block wonder. i hit the gas and sprinted up the hill. not too bad the first time. i ran back down to the base turned around and did it again. a little harder the second time around. three more times i did my best "the flash" impression. the hill laughed as my lungs heaved. after the fifth time, i'd had enough. i ran down flat terrace street and back home on belmont.
