    Default That Hill

    Sometimes I read these and just have to pass them along.

    That Hill

    Are you running that hill or is that hill running you?

    I was jogging, sweating, and breathing rather hard. I had
    jogged about three miles and I wasn't even halfway yet.

    As I was jogging up a hill a man about my age stood in his front
    yard watching me run. He stood cool and comfortable as sweat
    enveloped my body. No rapid breaths came from his lungs.

    He looked at me as if to say, "I'm not fool enough to do that in
    this heat."

    He spoke and said rather jokingly,
    "Are you running that hill or is that hill running you?"

    MountainWings has changed my thought patterns.

    So many of you have written and expressed how MountainWings has
    influenced your lives and thinking. It has changed me too. I now
    instantly recognize a MountainWings Moment. It's a moment in time
    and circumstance when life gives me an opportunity to fly or flop.

    All of us have MountainWings Moments each day, this was mine for
    the day.

    Was the hill running me or was I running the hill?

    Is the obstacle that you are facing running you or are you
    running it?

    It makes a difference which way you look at it.

    I don't like to flop. I prefer to fly. Although said jokingly,
    I took the question seriously. I decided I was not going to let
    any hill run me.

    The thing is, the hill doesn't care.

    The hill will be there, as unmoving and unconcerned as a tired
    dog watching cars from the porch on a hot day.

    Is your utility bill up? That's a hill.
    Are they putting pressure on you at work? That's a hill.
    Do you have some mean people in your life? That's a hill.
    Are you getting older? That's a blessing though it looks like a

    I have decided that no hill was going to run me.

    I stepped high and spoke in my mind to the hill, "Thanks for the
    workout, because of you I'm getting a real run that will make me
    stronger. You may put a strain on me but I'll be in better shape
    for you next time. If it wasn't for you, I would be weaker.

    Besides, in reality, I've got you under my feet."

    The hill didn't respond but faded in the distance as my stride

    Who's in charge of your hill?

    "Is the obstacle that you are facing running you or are you
    running it?" - Such an important question to ask yourself, time and again.
