I have never been much of an athlete, but hill climbs used to be the one area in which I could sort of hold my own. My hill climbing ability is also the one thing that seems to have faded most with age -- I keep hoping I just need to get back in practice. (When I lived in west Los Angeles, used a bicycle for almost all of my transportation needs, and weighed 10 pounds less than I do now, I encountered moderate hills daily, and various really tough hills, such as Tuna Canyon in Malibu or Mt. Wilson, on some weekends.)
