    When I used to run, I hated running on slanted hills. It felt terrible.

    You’re lucky it went so well! I trained completely flat and then did a very hilly 12 miler when staying with friends in upstate SC. I pulled a muscle behind my knee and it’s still giving me a lot of trouble! But awesome job!!!!

    Just do a couple more badass training runs like this and you’ll be fine for your race. Way to stick with it.

    Haha! I was thinking it seemed like the zoo from “We Bought a Zoo” too! And that was a cute movie! šŸ™‚

    I’m not a fan of hills at all and where I live (seacoast of NH) is pretty flat. My 10 miler this morning had an elevation gain of only 300+ feet and it sucked!

    I’ve never done it but I think a packet of salt at the end of a sweaty long run would be amazing!

    I live in Greenville SC now (land of cray cray hills) but my parents live in San Antonio (right by that fire station and park) so whenever I’m in town I run around there and the hills totally remind me of SC. I’m not a fan! FL is supposed to be flat! ;D

    Glad you made it through your run and I hope the San Ann people were kind to you guys!

    Way to go on 17 miles! Hills are sometimes brutal.

    Dang girl, I don’t know how you did 17 miles of hills!! We ran a half marathon this morning and I can barely move šŸ™‚ My dreams of a full are always squashed after I realize how much stronger my body needs to get!

    That’s pretty amazing that you ran 17 miles with hills. I still can’t imagine myself running more than 13 miles let alone hills. I run some of the local bridges for my hill workouts and I think that’s brutal. I love Munchies too…it’s definite must during any road trip.

    Don’t worry so much. The Pig course is ok. I mean, I hear its tough, but doable. And all the hills are in the first 13, and the last 2 are at a slight downhill the whole time!

    (So I hear…)

    Just curious if you have tried any other type of GPS running watch, or why do you love your garmin? I am in the market and I just dont know what to get.

    I had the Garmin 305 BUT i hate how it went dead so quickly.

    any advice would be great! šŸ™‚

      I’ve only ever run with a Garmin, so I guess I really don’t have anything to compare it too. Just love how easy it is to use and is (mostly) reliable. It’s never done me wrong. *knock on wood*
