Q: I have a hilly race coming up, but there are no hills where I live. How do I train for this?
Brandon Marsh answers:
A: For athletes who live among flat terrain but travel to races with some elevation, hill training can be a common problem. Growing up on the Gulf Coast of Texas, the only hills I had were overpasses. When I traveled to Austin or other northern areas of Texas to race, I was bound to encounter hills on the course. So, how did I overcome this obstacle?
