I was so focused on the commentary I was listening to on the MLB At Bat app that my legs just carried me as my brain was somewhere else. I alway ... Read on »

But I did enjoy todays run A LOT. Another training r ... Read on »
Atlanta Hill Run - 300 Feet Altitude Gain / Loss by Cord C. Patient Expert Posted Sun 09 Aug 2009 10:01pm One of the great things I've discovered about running around Atlanta is that the altitude changes are very unassuming.

I was able to keep my pace steady, slow, and EZ. My hea ... Read on »
