We were back in Ohio this past weekend. I needed to get a longer run in and decided I would go ahead and do it in the hills of Holmes County.
Hills provide a completely different challenge than the flat runs I am used to. I managed quite nicely and very much enjoyed the success.
I figured some of you might want to see the graph from my run. I use Nike Plus to track my distance, pace, and time. Their website has some nice features, but I use a different website for the graphs. SlowGeek.com offers a much better presentation of the data.

It’s kind of a reverse topography map: The higher points are when I was going faster downhill and the troughs are when I was slogging up hills. The red and green numbers are my mile splits. Red means the split was below average and green means it was above. The last mile and a half was pretty flat and I was excited to finish so it is not surprising to see green at the end.
I survived the run and we had a lovely weekend. It was great to see everyone!
