Hills? Oh, yeah, we have hills!

Hill #1 was downhill - yippee!

Even in the prairie we can find hills. Maybe not big ones, but lots of them and they can definitely be steep. We found this out first hand in the CRR XC Race series this weekend in Okotoks. The 8 km route was packed with hills that were rarely run-able. Passing people on the downhill was a lot of fun, but definitely treacherous.

At least we didn’t have the ice and side-ways snow we had last year (that came the next day).

Great post-race pot-luck lunch too!
