2019 HOKA ONE ONE Week 7, Summer Mileage, Training Week 7, Day 7: a long Sunday run


In college, I ran long runs on Sundays, every weekend, in the Santa Cruz mountains. With the cool weather, and shade provided by ancient Redwoods, the run would go downhill on the way out, and then, as we began to turn around, the long grind began. The pace quickened, our conversations short, and the focus more determined. The hills were relentless, as the sun shone through the Redwoods. We hit the final mile, this long, challenging mile, and we hit our coaches' driveway, spent, but satisfied. The long run hard been completed.

Make your long run memories...
