I started running in January of 2004 to get in shape. I had gained too much weight and felt terrible. I was able to run my first 5K 3 months later. 2 years later and 50 lbs lighter, I have continued to push for greater goals and have run 5 marathons and I am training for an Iron distance triathlon now. Everyday I wake up with a positive attitude towards life, training and my future.

Back to hillwork for this kid. I'd be lying if I admitted that I missed doing hillwork. But it is a necessary evil. Hillwork really builds the strength and endurance needed to push through the worse times during a run. I ran a route known as "Skyline Drive" in Canon City, CO. This ridge climb is used by tourists to view Canon City from above. It climbs about 600 ft up above Canon City. It was originally built using prison labor.

This run is really customizable - If you run from Hwy 50 to the top where the antennas are it is 1.65 miles. If you run from Hwy 50 to the 5th street exit it is 2.5 miles. This would be an uphill 1.65 miles and dowhill for the remainder. For those who like punishment I would suggest running the 2.5 mile route then run back the way you came for a leg burning, lung exploding run of 5 miles. Sounds crazy doesn't it. You can view this route on the USATF web site.
