Misconceptions

Does anyone else feel that when they run north that they are running up hill? Or, am I the only one?

(Funny side story: My younger brother's third grade teacher told his class that rivers don't flow north because water doesn't flow up hill. She must've been forgetting that one of the biggest rivers in the world, The Nile, flows north in to The Mediterranean. Silly. Do you think she really thought that? Or was she just fucking with their brains?)

Same with the Red River which basically divides North Dakota and Minnesota! I think the Red River is the only River in America that flows North.

Nope a regular section on my routes runs north-south and it feels like it is downhill which ever way I do it!

Hell, I don't ever know what direction I'm really running in!

Actually, the St. John's River in Florida flows north too. (I had to look it up though...but I remembered it right from my childhood growing up in Jacksonville!)

Happy running...north, south, east, or west!
