Hey, there’s a massive hill at mile 2.5. What have Justin and I signed up for? Oh my gawd it’s over 300 feet! Are we ready to climb Mt Hayes? Whew! But from mile 5.5 to the end it’s smooth sailing – it’s pretty much downhill. Sweet. See this map. In any case I’m still looking forward to it.
P.S. I ran Town Lake 10 miles this morning in about 1:36 which is fast for me now, but I found it exceedingly hard. The temperature, the humidity, my inability to breathe, my tired legs, all of this made it a tough run. I ran it all, but had a few short walk/water breaks which were more than I normally do.
