Hills. Runners in general kind of hate them, avoid them, and hesitate to sign up for a course that has hills. Because of this, I hosted a ladies hill repeat night with the support of Coeur.
Fourteen awesome, brave women showed up on Wednesday to run hill repeats for fun. A couple of them showed up not knowing anyone, they just splashed on some courage and arrived. That alone makes me really happy.
Hosting anything makes me anxious, so I reached out to coach Heidi Knapp of McFarland to see if she would help. She was so nice and supportive, I credit her with the success of the workout. When we were done with the hill repeats someone asked “When is the next one? How will I be notified?” and others chimed in with their interest for another session in May. Wow!
This is what hill repeats for fun looks like!
