After competing the lower section of Barton Creek, my friend and I decided to tackle the Hill Of Life before returning to Houston.  We had heard it was challenging and we were hungry for elevation training.

Frankly, I did not think the Hill Of Life (or Hill Of Death, depending on your perspective) was that difficult.  I walked up as far as I could.  I broke a sweat, but was not that winded.  It was also over sooner than I expected.  I guess my impression was it was somewhat overrated...
