Larry’s Deep Thoughts: Hills are the secret sauce. Olympians like Lasse Viren used 800m hills to prepare for both Munich and Montreal, as he was dealing with tender Achilles tendons. At Foothill College, head coach Joe Mangan and I used hill runs, hill fartleks, and hill repeats to build our cross-country team from early-season blahs to late-season confidence and focus. 

This is the special make for Josh Kerr. This is the Brooks Hyperion Elite LD, from Brooks Running
