Congratulations to everyone on today’s long and challenging run! Wondering how hard all those hills were compared to the actual marathon?
Today’s 12 mile run included about 450 feet of uphills, and the LA Marathon course includes about 950 feet of climbing. So, today, those of you who did the 12 miles, did about half the climbing, and about half the distance. In other words, we are halfway through our training and you are already strong enough to do the equivalent of half the course. As we continue, you’ll be getting stronger at a faster rate. Keep it up, and you’ll be more than ready for the big day.
Good luck next week to everyone participating the half marathon, and to those who aren’t, please go out and run with us in spirit. You’re all looking strong out there!
