    Great interview! I definitely agree, going up hills is the hardest, especially on the trail (if you’re mountain biking). When I joined the running club at my gym I learned so many new things. Just by hanging out with like minded (hobbied) people you can learn tons! Or by reading great blog posts 🙂
    Thanks
