Flavor flave and Chuck D rapping those powerful words.
Nothing like Public Enemy to get the running juices flowing.
Rather than run the Klim death run on Sunday. I met some tamer souls and did a 2 hr and 50 minute slow run on the tender loving rolling hills at Difficult run. Ran with ease.
upon conclusion of the run zipped back to the Running Store and served the running community all day. Made approximately 75 trips up and down the fabled Gtown RunCo slate stairwell.
Doing a workout like this is like running a marathon and then runing up and down stairs for the next 6 hrs.
My legs are now on fire 24/7. We keep large buckets of ice in the back to soak and stay fresh.
During the day of service at the store, you deal with bunions, plantar faciitis, defective asics, the new Reebok line, novice runners looking for affirmation, 20 year old elite college runners sneaking peaks at Let's Run, token appearances from local famous runners, educating people about the value of GU and Cliff Shots, hydration 101, talking to various tourists about the national mall and the wonders of DC and the same scenarios repeat themselves over and over and yes, there are the vaunted stairs. Those stairs have tamed many a runner.
A day in the life of running
