10/5/10-Do Something Epic

Today's run: 3.1 miles
Week to date: 11.1 miles
Month to date: 11.1 miles

Remember this hill?
Well, today, I got a brilliant idea after needing to blow off some steam.
Angry, epic Lindsey says, "Let's do this. Maybe afterwards, you'll feel more like this:"

So, off I went. It was a mile and a half of rolling side street and dirt road to get there. I got there, and briefly considered backing out, as that sucker is downright intimidating. Then I remembered what had me so irked this morning, and up I went.
I'll admit this: it was more of a walk/shuffle/crawl to the top. It was wet, slippery, muddy, and sandy, and my footing was scary and dicey at best. I was determined, though, and I dragged myself to the top. And, let me tell you, it was worth it:
Picture that, but only morning, and all the greens are shades of orange, yellow, and red. Freaking amazing, and it never fails to help me center myself and realize how small my problems really are when I'm in a place like that looking out at a view like that. I hung around for about 5 minutes enjoying it all, then I shuffle/slid my way back down and headed home.
Now, I'm sweaty and dirty to boot, but I do feel less enraged.
Now, what next: food or shower? Hmmm...
Have a good day, all!
