My favorite run loop...

My favorite run is a great little spot (that I won't say the name because we get too many tourists on it) but it is a 6.5 mile loop (I know, all the locals reading this are shouting ____ _____!!).

It is a gradual 2-4% grade up for 3.25 miles and then a gradual 2-4% grade down the 3.25 miles... BUT the best part is that it has side streets on the mauka side that lead up... up to grades that are painful.... grades that hurt.... grades that make you LOVE a 2-4% grade.

So, coach gave me a 70 min run with hills and I hit ____ _____. As I ran the 3.25 miles up I also went up each of the side streets, then back down, then on the 3.25 miles down I ran up all the side streets and back down.

Kainoa and I decided to go back and take photos of this awesome run spot... it is not only a beautiful neighborhood but a hilly adventure.

You probably do more damage on those roads then cars. :)

It's a good idea, one that countless other people have no doubt had, but not been able to implement due to RENT CONCERNS. The concept does have some problems though related to properly rendering the different content for example now I get to lose my font and my color of my document, I guess maybe that is fine but who decided theirs was better, just for the common man?
