7 Hills Road. (Yeah Right.)

Just West of Plymouth is an area called the Kettle Moraine. Its an area known for its hills and is great for biking and running. An Ironman friend of mine told me about this road called "7 Hills Road." Just based on the name, I was hooked. He said he's biked it a lot, and many of the hills make the biker look down to make sure his tires aren't flat--they're that steep. Bring it on!

I drove out to 7 Hills Road this morning and parked somewhere in the middle, with the intention of running it from end to end (it's 8 miles in length). Well, I didn't quite make it end to end, but did cover 12 miles of really hilly terrain. Chalk this battle up to 7 Hills. It may have won the battle, but I'll be back to win the war! And it's a whole bunch more than 7 hills. More like 20.

Yep, I would definitely call those hills. You'll be rocking each and every one of them soon enough, keep at it!

Uhhhhhhhhh you ran that? I think the view would be better in the passenger seat of a CAR! :P But that's what makes you a speedy speedster ;-)

Wow...that's one crazy elevation profile. Looks more fit to a motorbike trail than a running track. Can't wait for the day that you'll conquer that thing!

Good night, that's the kind of thing I avoid like the plague. :D I suppose that's what make you, you, and me, me. :D

I, for one, am jealous that you have hills in the area let alone that you get to run them. Run those a few times and Boston will seem like nothing.
