Saturday Training, 6/2/07: Mango Madness Preview Run

Aloha Athletes,

Since next Saturday (June 9th) is the Mango Madness, what better route to run this week than a preview of the course. Co-Race Director Mike Muench did such a fine job describing the trails in his post announcing the race, a preview run is hardly needed. However, I know some of you will want to see just how easy a route this is. Essentially it’s as described, half the race is uphill and the second half is downhill.
