Getting Slower

Ran the Haynes loop in 50:21 for five miles. We'll be out on the marathon course tomorrow morning from the start line in Hopkinton for a group run.

Milder temps are melting the snow making easier running but snow expected for early tomorrow.

Broke the Silence

Its a good feeling to have gone the 26.2 mile distance once again in an almost two year hiatus. Even if I walked the last two miles in a cold, wet wind driven rain; the flushed cheeks and sore muscles are worth it.
Now, if I could only get back on the real training regimen I should think a qualifier would be in the works come Boston.
Oh, the specifics? Unofficial 4:12 with a 1:45 half. Weeks total: 31.2 miles.

Run with the Wind

Ran an easy five this morning in 42 minutes.

Winter Hike - Mt. Flume and Mt. Liberty

Photos from the hike up Mt. Flume and Mt. Liberty. You can spot me as the hiker on top of the mountain.

Beautiful weather with much of the hike up with two just two long sleeve tops!
