I'm an east coaster (a Philadelphian to be exact), and I just registered for the Mt. Hood 50-miler. I'm PSYCHED for the beautiful Oregon mountain views. I'm in need of some new inspiration for hilly trail-runs in the Philly area. Anyone have any suggestions??
I'm from Austin, TX but when I was looking for some great tough courses, I found a local running store that hosts group runs and asked them. They pointed me to some of the toughest trails I have ever run on that I would have never found on my own.

Hi there,I know for myself training for a very hilly race can be a little boreing.So may i suggest getting your I- pod with some good motivational thrust behind it and get to a nice mountainous area,run all the straits and when you get to the hills run half and walk the other half.For me,2 to 3 hrs is usually sufficient.Good luck.....marc
There's always the treadmill, stairstepper and old-fashioned steps.
