Less than a month away before I get to rock Hospital Hill. It wasn’t until recently that I began to think….why on earth do they call it hospital hill? Could there possible be a Hill on the course that rivals the many hills I have to tackle every day in my city? The only thing I can do is to make sure i am prepared. I have been preparing by making sure all my training runs include some hills and even doing more runs in the dreaded Umstead Park(full of challenging hills). I do have 1 half marathon this month before heading to Kansas City, but it is a beach run so I can only hope that all my hill work will show plenty of benefits on a flat beach course.
As if the Hospital Hill Half Marathon wasn’t enough, I decided to pull the trigger on doing the Hospital Hill 5k the night before. I can’t help it, I am a bling chaser and I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to come home with 3 medals instead of just 1. In addition I have a good friend that lives in Kansas City, that will be sure to show me a good time while I am there. We are even playing around with the idea of going to a Kansas City Royals game on that Saturday. I have only been to 2 MLB games in my life, the NY Yankees and NY Mets.
Stay tuned as i continue to prepare for Kansas City. Kansas City, I’m coming for you.
