If it makes you feel better, in about 20 hours I'm going to be complaining about the 500 foot climb going home from work. Whenever I'm on a recovery ride or commute and tired af, I have to go up that stupid hill.

Ultimately I enjoy hills, but it would be nice if we had a few long and flat routes with no stoplights.
