Chicago RnR 1/2 Marathon
Good link by giddy up. You need to get resistance on toes and bring toes in using tires, cables, bands, weights or whatever.

Run hills. High as possible. Mostly steep.
I've got a fever...
Calves running me up Pikes Peak marathon.

Needs more cowbell!
Those aren't calves. They're steers!
