Ann is mean

"I am lazy and reused a route," stated Ann in her email. She went on to explain that when we originally ran this, it was the day after we had trained with our coach, so we might as well do it again.

What terrible logic! My legs started out shot, and the climb up to Pittock felt tough. The weather was nice and we had a gorgeous view (made particularly sweet by the break). Then another gratuitous downhill and back up, whereupon Sally broke off.

Ann and I continued, and took our break after the long slog up Saltzman. Thankfully, the rest of the run was nice and flat.  Next time she mentions the word "lazy," I will be wary!
