I wish I could be all “technical” here about running, about form, times, splits, speed work, etc., etc., but I cannot. I’m not THAT type of runner. What I am is a visual runner.

How to Love Running Hills: Paul Gorman

Sunset Running

Yes, that’s right it’s possible to love running hills in Kansas City. Everyone dreads the small hills, long hills, steep hills. Before races people are looking at maps, driving the course, asking other runners to spot the hills so they can prepare for them. Me? I look forward to the hills? Yes, I’m crazy, but not for a particular reason.
