Retweeted by Jane McGonigal@dine_and_dash lafayette reservoir is a great place to work on downhills... trying to keep a light quick turnover, no pounding!@dine_and_dash I always think on our long runs "What would Jen do?" :)@dine_and_dash you're the only person I'm going to listen to about CIM from now on ;)@PeterAbraham I'm just saying I feel very confident that i can handle the elevation profile. :) the distance is always hard!@GordMcLeod so true :)@bschorr I know!! but everyone keeps saying "IT"S NOT DOWNHILL!! IT'S ROLLING HILLS!" seriously 300 ft/!?!?@akalious oooh interesting! I haven't watched yet it's on in 20 minutes!! hope you get to see it soon too!...the elevation charts for CIM show 300 foot gain over 26.2 miles. 300 feet gain?!?! over 26 miles? that's practically downhill people!!!because everyone keeps telling me "CIM is NOT flat! It's rolling hills! BE PREPARED!! Don't let the hills surprise you!!!" BUT....OK, we may be over-preparing for California International Marathon's "rolling hills" course. We did 1600 ft elevation gain over 12 miles....@ItrimLafayette thanks for asking ^_^@ItrimLafayette we've been doing half marathons all year so just started extending long runs about 6 weeks ago. already at 18 miles!I'm so happy it's Sunday Night. #FreeCaryAgosthis just made my day http://t.co/QhqkP22wys
