We have a little property in Comfort at the top of a hill, and it is a bitch to climb it and get home at the end of a run. Haven't been there in forever. But, yeah, from little I recall about Atlanta, it's not flat by any stretch - but I can't recall the weather. Since you mention cerveza and tacos, I'll probably pencil in a SA race, maybe the marathon (fall, right?)
today: 3 sets 3 x 300 / 100 recovery. Kinda started rough but held on and finished stronger than I'd expected. Signed up for March 3 marathon (woodlands). Wife disapproves but such is life.
