Hills aren’t so bad

Wow, my middle week run is up to 5 miles now.  Things are really starting to pick up.  I headed out the door, not really knowing where I was going.  My parents recently moved and though I grew up in St. Louis, I’m not at all familiar with their new neighborhood.  This area was a vast exapanse of farmland when I moved away and now it’s a bustling, repidly developing suberb.

I managed to work out a nice five mile route.  The terrain here undulates quite a bit.  Icould definately get used to running downhill and the uphill isn’t so bad.  I’ll have to run 20 miles here in December, so perhaps my opinion will change then.
