So here in SW VA we are a pretty rural/suburban at best community. I was looking on runningintheusa.com this morning for a 5k in the middle of my 10k race training, and seriously, right on the exact day on the calendar, there is an inaugural 5k race for a new town project nearby (which is a miracle in and of itself).
The race starts at my gym.1 minute from my house.
It runs RIGHT PAST MY HOUSE.
If course, my neighborhood, being in SW VA, is all HILLZ. With a Z for emphasis. Meep.
