They're brutal. Whether long with a slight incline, or short and steep, they tend to fight back and usually win. This is extremely annoying because really, all they are doing is just sitting there, which makes the battle so unfairly one-sided. But, some of us keep fighting them despite this. If you're not lucky enough to run with a friend who helps push you to the top, skip to your most loud and energetic songs with a super fast tempo as your climbing. When you get to the top, take a minute to pause, look down and recognize how bad a** you are. For that, it's worth it.
For all of you who don't voluntarily torture yourselves with running hills, this post is for your personal hills, whatever those might be.
