Most runners believe that to become a better uphill runner they simply need to get in better shape. While improving one's cardiovascular fitness level is always beneficial, there is another way to make up time. Just like hitting a golf ball or shooting a basketball, technique for running matters. And with practice, your form can improve and running uphill will be a more relaxed endeavor.
Now that the weather is getting warmer many of us are getting the itch to be outside. A great outdoor activity is hiking. For you that may mean a day walk, for others it's a back packing experience. Whether you plan a day or a week here are some factors to consider.
