Right now I do all my running on a treadmill, a youngster keeps me tied to the gym, once it warms up I run up Shaw mt. and as far as I need to up Rocky Canyon Road. Not sure how much info is in it but there is a book called "Boise Trail Guide" by Steve Stuebner It says it has 75 Hiking and Running routes close to home. I just got it from the library, so don't know much about it. Might be something for you to look into:-)
My sister is going to do the Bloomsday run this year! She wants me to do it with her, but I don't want to drive 6 hours:-) I think any run with hills is difficult, yet rewarding when you complete it! Good Luck Ryan!
I have a feeling people might think it's harder for two reasons: 1) You're running on trails instead of a road; 2) You're having to run uphill twice. I figure it'll be easier to get a # for Dry Creek than Robie, plus, I'd rather run up two hills, than one long one :).
P.S. I'm thinking of doing Bloomsday in Spokane one year too, I've heard that's a killer due to the hill at the end :).
