|Sansom Park in Fort Worth - a view from the top of my hill|
|Sansom Park - the trails that cut straight from the lake up to the parking lot are called the "fisherman trails"|

Every other weekend I drive 40 minutes to Sansom Park on Lake Worth. Not only is it a beautiful place with rugged trails, its boast these super rocky and rugged climbs that you just can't find anywhere else in DFW. Im sure there are some out there but these are in the same park as 9 other miles of great trails.

|Sansom Park - looking down the first section of the climb. With all the loose rock, its best to take it carefully. i've wiped out many times!|

Below is a picture going up Lucky Peak at Bandera. See a resemblance? These hills I train on, are as close to Bandera terrain as it gets. My goal is to feel so comfortable on this terrain that this little race in October they call the Cactus Rose 100 is a breeze. Well, maybe not a breeze, because if it doesn't hurt like hell then you're doing something wrong. I started doing this hill workout just two weeks after last Cactus Rose back in November.
