AM Hill Workout - Gatlinburg, TN.  Still at the cabin in Gatlinburg.  WU for about 15 minutes going down the hill a bit.  8:00 min. uphill - LT effort.  388 ft. elev. gain over 0.76 miles is almost 10% avg. grade... Recovery jogging after that and then finished up with 5xhill 25-30sec. sprints.  An interesting feature of Strava is its GAP or grade adjusted pace.  Fun to look at, but not too accurate.  It was saying that my GAP for the hill sprints was well under 4minute mile pace.  :)  Into a taper week.  Columbus, OH Marathon on Sunday Oct. 19

AM easy run - we're back home after a long weekend trip to Gatlinburg.  The drive turned in to an all day trip with traffic, so I was pretty wiped out.  Got some new gear at the New Balance outlet in TN.  Pretty excited about the 870v3 Rev Lite's and new socks, shorts and hat.  Cool to discover that the items in this paticular outlet store were actually less expensive than normal stores.  I've noticed that alot of the outlet stores are just another store of that particular brand and don't offer any deals. 

Legs are very sore from sitting in the car all day and running alot more hills than I am used to.

PM: mod. 3 miles around the hood.  About 7:20 pace.  Driving to Columbus, OH tomorrow afternoon, hitting up the expo and pasta dinner, and then marathon Sunday morning.  Belated congrats to all the Chicago Marathoners.  A couple guys I know and used to run "with" ran extremely well - 2:42, and 2:43. I'm expecting big things from myself on Sunday.
