Who Stole the Air?


One advantage of international travel is that I get to run in some different places. This week, I've been at the Baptist Guest House in Johannesburg (OK, Edenvale), South Africa. A friend told me about a great route that I could run that would be about 5 miles. Well, at about the halfway point on that route, the road goes uphill for 2 straight miles and climbs something like 220 feet. Johannesburg is at 5500' above sea level. Some friend -- thanks, Fred, why are you trying to kill me? And, who took all the air from this place? Oh, yeah, I forgot -- hills make you stronger!

Here's the route.

At least I get to run on grass/dirt for about half the route.

Run well, y'all,
Bob
