I may have bit off more than I can chew.
I signed up for a 6 mile Christmas run a few weeks ago, knowing I should have reached or exceeded my 10K goal. As I was looking at the route this morning, I discovered that the course is anything but flat. In fact, it goes up a street into our foothills with an approximate elevation gain of 900 - 1000ft. Then descends on the other side. I haven't had much practice with many hills and am feeling a bit nervous. I don't have many hills close by to practice on, especially with that long of a climb. Any suggestions?!
