    Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless

      CT weather looking pretty good for Sunday...no rain until afternoon, and relatively cool - 55 wakeup, 73 high, light winds...good racing weather! Good luck at Simsbury!

        New Year's Race Los Angeles, January 3, 2015

          Thanks. 17:42. 5OA, 1AG. Not the 17:30 I wanted, but 4 sec PR so can't be mad. Was a fun time.

          day after day sameness

            I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't experience it, Kevin -- but the weather was amazing...bright sunshine and high 60s, while just a few hundred miles in northern New England, we've had days of rain and 6" in the last two days.

             

            Ran a 1:40:12-ish today at Iron Horse half, about 60 - 70 seconds off what I wanted. Went through 10 miles about 1 second over my 10mi PR, but had to choose to back it down for the final 5K, the temps had climbed to 70s, and I was fighting a bum leg causing calf cramping.  Finished about #130 of 1,050 or so.

             

            Nice race...well organized, with a beautiful course. Other than the early start, no complaints. I'd do this one again.

              Well done, both of you!!

              Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

                  Great times for both of you.

                      Thanks, Andy! That's a lot better than my wife's (sarcastic) response...."Lemme get this straight - you ran about 1800 miles in the last year, and you went a whole 9 seconds faster than last year at this race? Clap, clap."
