1. The Box in JMRC Hohenfels in Bavaria/Bayern, Germany. They do hold an annual 10--mile race and it does include a small mountain known as Hoover's Damm (to run up the slope to the top, it does take about 3 minutes and it is about 30* or 1/3 of a straight angle; it must be at least 400 m long).
2. (Very slowly, they are trying to make it perfect; very slowly, tough), the WeeQuaHic Lake Park in Newark, NJ, Jogger's Path: 2.2 miles with metric and mile marks and with artificial surface looping around the very lake (the lake used to stink and was full of garbage; it is far from being great, but the garbage for the major part was removed and the stench is gone -- they are trying to spend virtually no money by fixing the area over a period of 10 or 20 years, so annual expenses are a pocket change in the budget of the cities of Newark and Irvington as well of the Essex county).

I wouldn't have thought to add Hayward Field as "a place to run," but it makes perfect sense now that you mention it and should probably be made bold!

Print that photo and place it in front of your treadmill ... problem solved!

Of course, I have a Pre photo in front of my treadmill and I still don't much care for running inside... Neutral

Dan

p.s. Appropriate timing of the bump to this thread; we were just down at Hayward Field on Saturday for the Oregon Preview.

Yeah I dont think that will work... Basically about the only thing I could think of is a big HD screen with surround sound and "Sunrise Earth" might do it...

How was it?

Looking forward to seeing (hopefully) a bit more footage of Rupp at NCAA indoors tonight.

Good day, good meet. Lousy weather before and after the meet (*), even pouring rain on the drive down and back, but fairly nice throughout. We had three athletes run and two of them PR'd (including a big 1.03 seconds in the 800), with the 3rd running his 2nd best time ever and being closest to his seed time of anyone in the race.

(*) The following Monday's workout had 20-30 mph winds and a 32 degree windchill. That's been pretty typical for most of our workouts and early season races. Sad

I am looking forward to see how my girls do this spring and see what I have going forward... Just too many meets IMO but there is nothing I can do about it. so its just kind of figure out a plan that works best for it.

Thats nice I still want to get out there for a race my wife hinted she may consider adding it in as a Birthday present but they still have the dates for last years all comers meets up...

The All Comer's dates usually don't get posted until late in the season, but expect them to be pretty much the same from year to year, except when affected by things like the Trials. Basically, they're every Thursday in July, plus late June and early August (if memory serves).
