For those of us who enjoy runs that often take us uphill, we know that such runs are not easy. I found this article from David Roche a two-time USATF trail national champion that has some great tips on how to do your uphill runs as smoothly and effortlessly as possible. He boils his tips down to 3 tips–lean in, relax, and hike with a purpose. Good tips for any ultra runner I think too. Enjoy the article here.
