Hills, Hills, HILLS!

Pittsburgh is hilly.  I ran most of my 4.89 miles uphill.

Take THAT, hills! (Holy crap do my legs ever feel this one!)

I improvised this very weird little path through Allegheny Cemetery / Lawrenceville that had me ‘bounding’ up hills every chance I got.  I can really feel it in my legs – in a good way!  Every time I run in that place, I run some different, doofy way.  I like to challenge myself.  And apparently I like the temporary panic of thinking maybe I’m lost.

As for the weather — well, there’s nothing like autumn in Pennsylvania.  Sorry, California, you really don’t have anything on this:

Note it is zombie-free
It really is lovely in Allegheny Cemetery, and the reason it looks so clear of leaves is they were actively getting rid of them.  
Geese are scarier than zombies
 

Even though I’m allergic to SO MUCH of it, I adore seeing everything change throughout the seasons.  Catch me in winter — betcha I won’t be so enthralled then!
