I ran the Bix 7 in 2010.  I trained on a treadmill for several months beforehand...did a couple 5K's and finally made it to the Bix.  Luckily it wasn't horribly hot.  It actually rained the whole time which was perfectly fine with me.

Back then I didn't know what to expect when running this race.  I heard that Kirkwood was a killer and that Brady wasn't any fun either...but thankfully today we have helpful folks like Fleet Feet's Phil Young.  Here, Phil gives you a nice video preview of what to expect when running the Bix 7 this weekend.
