One of the many steep hills in this city

Being here in San Francisco, I'm confronted with all the stereotypes and conclusions of those who have reported to me about how the Bay Area compares to Metro NYC. So far, it's mostly the same shit, but I cannot deny that San Fran's hills are no joke. The photo doesn't show it, but this hill — I think Grant St. — is pretty serious. Moving from street to street is a serious matter of changing altitudes, and during yesterday's run, I found myself panting like the fat kid in gym class.

So I guess San Fran is a great place to be if you're concerned about your health. Strong legs and healthy hearts must surely be standard kit among citizens here.
