The Hittle Has Been Conquered

by sara on July 18, 2010

There is a hill near our house that draws cyclists and runners from all over to attempt the grueling steep climb as part of their training.  It is no easy feat.  I’ve run a half marathon but when I tried to run up this hill for the first time I had to stop and give myself CPR.  To make matters worse, when you get to the part of the hill where bikers must shift to their lowest gear and runners must utilize every single ounce of energy in their body to keep going, there is Mr. Rick Hittle smiling at you from his billboard.

You think it’s funny Rick?  I don’t see your punk ass out there.  I’m kidding, I love the Hittle.  I love him so much I named the hill after him.  I give you, “the Hittle”:

I am proud to say that I have successfully dominated The Hittle on multiple occasions as part of my hill training.  Until today, however, I never did it with such vigor and determination to say IN YO FACE HITTLE.  I couldn’t have done it without my trusty sidekicks, Enzo and Riley.  And you’re not gonna believe this but the paparazzi was everywhere and captured the whole thing!

Here we come!  Even the cyclists couldn’t keep up with me.

Thinking about The Hittle trying to slow me down.  Wasn’t having it.

Not gonna lie, I was looking for Heidi and Spencer the whole time.

We’re not done yet mutts!  See that sign?  That’s Rick Hittle telling me I can’t do it.

Oh hey Rick.  Just wanted to say hi on my WAY TO THE TOP.  Nerdlet.

I want everyone to pick that scary route in your neighborhood and go out and dominate it.  You can call it The Hittle if you want but let’s be honest here, there’s only one Hittle.  And the best part of this whole story is that Jason actually called him (marketing works!) and he saved him a ton of money on car/renters insurance!!  Hittle FTW!

Riley Bears was wore out.  She’s happy we saved a bunch of money on our car insurance though.

I asked them if they wanted to go again.  “Say what?”

Riley’s cool down trot straight to the paparazzi.

The Hittle x2?  Maybe next time, Rick.  For now, thank you for the challenge.  And seriously, thank you for saving us a bunch of money.

After the run the paparazzi and I headed to the pool to cool down.  In the words of Ice Cube, gotta say it was a good day.

This is awesome! Congratulations on totally dominating the “Me”. Next time I’m gonna have to advertise on a steeper hill.
