First of all, I'm glad I found this group.
I have been running seriously for a couple of years. I have done two 5ks (one of which I finished first place in my age group whohoo!) and one 4 mile trail run. I am considering training for a 1/2 in October. My longest run lately has been 6 1/2 miles.
The race I am considering is about 45 minute from my house, which is why I want to do it. However, it is VERY hilly. The area around my house where I normally run is very very flat. I don't have time to run up to that area every weekend for my long run. It is hard enough to get the running in with two little kids under the age of 5. I could probably get there a handful of times between now and October.
I am worried about doing the hills and not being prepared. Would it help to do some treadmill workout on inclines? Run up stadium steps? Advice appreciated! Thanks! :)
