Tennessee to North Carolina - Running Mt. Zion

Leaving Highway 421 and heading up the hill on Brushy Fork Road, there is a major climb to Zionville, NC. Like the original Mt. Zion, the state line sits on a hilltop, requiring a run uphill both ways! At least there are no old city walls defending the area against runners. Yeah, life is too easy, and that is part of my motivation (I guess) for my Crazy Ass Running Plan. #CARPe
