Hills are my new best friend

Getting ready to run over 1000 miles is not something you can prepare for perfectly, but I’ll attempt to take a shot at it today. Tracks, trails, and your local side-walks are great, but unless you live in San Francisco, odds are you’re quick 3 mile run may not be too intense.

Sadly to say I don’t live in San Francisco either so to remedy this I’ve started attacking any and all hills I can find. Today it will be in Reading, Pa at the famous Pagoda on top the hill.

For those of you not from the area the photo below will give you a pretty good depiction of what it looks like at night. Perched atop one of the highest points in the city this landmark has been interesting runners for years, and today it interest me.The Glowing Pagoda (Reading PA)

So with that being said I’m off for an early morning race to the summit. To find out more about the places I run and stay in touch check me out @paidtorun.
