I had a job interview. Overall I think it went well; it seems like a cool place with interesting work, and I think they got a good sense of what I can do for them. If they make an offer I’ll be pleased, but I’m still looking. (AKA: Nice first date, but it’s just a first date. ;)
The interview was on top of one of Seattle’s hills. I had thought there was a public parking lot a (relatively flat) block over. Turns out it’s not a public lot. I ended up parking in a lot a block and a half the other way…
Down one of those steep, 15% grade hills from the office.
Now, I didn’t start my exercise routine with the idea of being able to walk this particular hill. But thanks to exercising routinely, I was able to walk up it without a problem. :) Going back down to my car I went very slowly, but again, not a problem. Kind of makes me glad I’ve been deliberately including the hills around my house when going for walks!
(Of course, if I get the job I’ll probably end up walking that sort of hill more frequently. ;)
(FYI: Seattle has hills steeper than 15%, but the one I was one was about a 15% grade.)
