It's a Flat World?

One of the first things that struck us about Ohio is how flat it is around here, particularly when we flew in. Our house in NY was on a big hill - so steep, in fact, that the kids weren't really able to ride their bikes. And of course we've been around the Adirondacks for quite a while.

So our house here is on a much flatter place. At least, that's what I thought until I went for a run through the neighborhood.

Turns out "flat" isn't quite the correct word. We're at the top of a bit of a hill after all - and the last few minutes of my run can be pretty rough...

No pain, no gain, right? Whew!

It's funny how perceptions change when you are running. As flat as Holland is, I always seemed to be running uphill. :)
