Vista Optional

Yesterday I ran one of my favorite runs ever.  It involves running up the side of  a mountain, along it’s ridge and then down the other side. Maybe I exaggerate when I say mountain, since the entire run is not even 7 miles, but to call it a hill would be a mighty understatement.  I dread this run that I am unable to resist, and now that it’s done I can’t wait to dread it again.

It always gets me thinking about what kind of vistas I miss by taking the easy road…even when the easy road clearly leads to my destination.


Sometimes I think God gives us optional hills…nothing really necessary to salvation, but just an opportunity to feel a little burn as we gain empowering perspective.

This week I want to hit the hills.

  1. Hmmm and this week I am wanting the easy way! :) Not sure why . . . maybe it is the cloudy, rainy days we are having.

    Thanks for your sweet comment the other day. I'm glad you are enjoying running again. I think I go through phases with running and I am coming to a phase of being tired of it. This usually happens right before a big race!

    Have a great day!


Please share your expressions!
