Ahoy hoy! It's Monday and it feels like it's Monday. I have a doctor's appointment today to check into a cough that I just can't shake. I'm hoping that I've been running at a low lung capacity and that once I get this fixed, I'll be FLYING. Let's quickly recap last week's marathon training, so …

a natural elevation of the earth's surface, smaller than a mountain.
an incline, especially in a road:This old jalopy won't make it up the next hill.

a small mound of earth raised about a cultivated plant or a cluster of such plants.
