14 miles, 7:51 avg pace. Ran out 7 miles along 34th street to landsdown out to Belmont and the plateau and to Ford road and over the strawberry mansion bridge and back. This is probably the hilliest possible 14 mile loop from my house in Philly and the run felt great.

I was home visiting my parents so took advantage of the hills around Cockeysville/Lutherville/Timonium.  1,100 ft elevation gain during the loop run.  Legs are trashed post run.
