Side Stichin'

C - 6 (.1?) miles, 54:27, push Up challenge

It's been a while since I got a serious side stitch (although I do remember grabbing at my side and listing to the right at one point during our last half marathon), but today was brutal.  I was running up a hill when my side started hurting, and by the time I was running down the other side of the hill I was ready to scream because my side was on fire.  There was a very fit woman that was running up the hill as I was going down, and normally my pride would never, ever let her pass me at a faster pace than I was going.  Today, I was mostly willing myself to keep moving without grimacing.   I'm pretty sure I looked like a new runner who was afraid of running down hill.  Sigh.

Even on the best of days, I'm not the "lets sprint up that hill" type..
The nice thing about side stitches is that they don't last that long.  I just wish I knew how to get rid of them altogether.  I mean seriously, can't my push ups make this issue just magically go away??
