Pepper and I ran Hampton Hills barefoot again today. It has been a very long time since our last visit here. We ran the 3.2 mile loop twice for some extra hill work. If you run it, the cc direction provides some significant climes for the first half and you're rewarded with a comparatively flat second half. The "hills" of the Blue Ridge Marathon are freaking me out a little and I've been looking for some serious hill work to train on. Hampton Hills is close, and I figure I'll try it a couple of times a week and try to get a few minuets off each time.
It was a wonderful day today: 60's; my YUT-C tech shirt and shorts; sun warming the run; breeze cooling the sweat; and leafless forest allowing distant visibility. This is another of my favorite runs. Oh, and Pepper likes the creek too.
