New hill mentality

8 mi. “You run through the pain with your head.” This statement from Megan Hartman summarizes my 6 miles of hills. She is a local runner, friend of Teresa and Angie’s that came in second overall at Saturday’s Dreher Park Dash. She ran in high school and at Clemson, with a best ever 5k in the low 18 min range. I was glad to run with her, to listen and learn and to have someone else talk to me when I was running uphill, instead of the usual me entertaining the masses. We ran a good pace for the hills. I took a quick rest room break at mile 4. She looks to come to the workouts more often, I’d welcome that. If she wants to retool herself to 18 min 5k form, I’d be welcome to that accompaniment as well!
