Why Run Far

Going to a running camp is a good incentive to do some extra training, especially when it involves 20 mile runs that are over 11,000 feet of altitude.  

Therefore I will go for a long run today here on the coast.  Hoping to also get some photos…

Here is the schedule for the running camp:
