Notebook: Increasing Vertical, Photos of the Week

This season, I decided that my running emphasis would be elevation gain. I would learn to love hills. Get strong running them. Seek them out. I’ll look forward to one more climb at the end of a long run on a hot Saturday. Given a choice between distance and vertical, this year, I’m choosing vertical.

How much? We’ll see. My limitations are evident living in Philadelphia where my home sits at 300 feet; it’s essentially sea level. But I’m just about at 25,000 feet so far. Not bad for a mid-Atlantic state. It’ll be a challenge for sure, but it’ll be worth it!

On to the photos of the week! All of these were taken in Wissahickon Valley Park in Northwest Philadelphia.
