Back to running....HILLS (Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park)
By tls on Sep 25, 2007
I'm back to running, getting ready for the next Dallas White Rock Marathon this December. More on that later.
But first, before I forget, I had a great hill run that I want to tell others about.
Yesterday, another sun colleague, Dave Smith, and I wanted a hill workout while traveling in the San Jose area. Over a year ago, another Sun colleague, Derrick Harcey, had run the hills in the East Bay in Pleasanton, CA. If you are out in the East Bay and looking for a great scenic workout, out in nature, away from the roads and traffic, you need to check out the Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park.
Due to the late start (6:30pm) we were only able to get a couple of miles in, but that couple of miles turned out being over a 1000 ft climb and back down. Not the same as the hills in Dallas, maybe a 100 ft climb.
