Only crazies do hill repeats in Haiti

You know the stares you get when you are doing hill repeats? Now imagine that in a country where no one exercises “just for fun”. Just eeking out a living with manual labor is exercise enough.

While in Haiti I ran up a 300m hill 3 times one day and 6 times the next. Of course I was gawked at by the locals. It seemed they went out of their way to come check out this crazy runner.  Why would a seemingly “rich” white man run anywhere let alone up a hill repeatedly? Surely I could find a better way to spend my time.

I enjoyed expanding their minds that being different is okay.
