Why I Love Running Hills

 This morning I ran my first long run since Ironman Coeur D’Alene, and finally after two months I felt great running!  It was wonderful, I ran a challenging, rolling course and realized while I was grinding up that last set of hills that I have been desperately missing my regular hill workouts.   313 more words

Bunny Hills

The heat broke yesterday, and I’m not sure it even got above 80. There was a beautiful breeze blowing in my window in the morning, and I didn’t wake up sweaty and gross from another hot July night. 537 more words
