Our little Miss Sophie has come up with a great plan for this Saturday since we are getting close to our last nice weekend. So instead of Endurance Mill in the gym attached is the information for this Saturday’s Epic Hilloween Effort!!
Inspired by the spirit of Halloween and the last few weeks of nice Fall weather, we are proposing a SPOOKTACULAR challenge, The Hilloween Hill Climb. This event is organized every year by my dear friend in Colorado and her boyfriend. It is fun, a great butt buster challenge, and as competitive or non competitive as you would like!!
Here are the quick facts of the event:
WHO: Anyone is welcome. Costumes highly encouraged.
WHAT: INCLINE CHALLENGE! Within a 5 hour (or less) time frame, how much incline can you run? This can be done with a long steep run or continuous hill repeats.
WHEN: Saturday October 26th, Time: 9(ish)?
WHERE: We are thinking meeting at Dollar parking lot and running repeats or loops around Dollar. It's in the sun and there is enough space for a fun group dynamic where people can run together and support one another.
WHY: Why NOT?!
HOW: Bring your GPS watches to track your elevation gain. If you choose, you can post your results on the event website and maybe even win a prize! We are also thinking of having a "support table" at the base of the trail head with music & snacks.
*To clarify, the 5 hour time frame is the max amount for the challenge. If you don't want to spend 5 hours running - totally understandable. Do what you can. It will just be fun to be outside and change up your training routine for a day!

Please let us know by Wednesday/Thursday of this week if this something that sparks your interest. Would love to see you there!
