Boston has more of a net elevation loss than CIM. That surprised me.
interesting for sure, perhaps its more due to the few inclines? not 100% how the loss is calculated
a year ago i would say id do a marathon in (fall) 2010, but ive realized to get the times I desire I need more work on short course stuff then slowly increase the distance. plus training for swimming + biking means less running workouts, its totally cool tho
good luck in training/racing everyone!
