The Boston Marathon is held on Patriot's Day every year and this year could be a phenomenal event. There are great runners as always, including a number of American runners in the men's and women's fields. Here are some links to previews from various sites.
Well, I got out for a nice 6 miler this morning at a pace around 7:38/mile. It is nice out, sunny, but a little windy. Over the last few weeks, I have drifted off a little from running. Ever since the NYC Half, which was awesome by the way, but COLD. I ran it in a decent, but just ok 1:36. It was 29 degrees and windy, so yes it was COLD. Currently, my kids are participating in 6 teams, with 2 being coached by yours truly. Also, still trying to sell the house, which means up keep and fixing, clearing garbage out and donating, etc. Blah, Blah, Blah, right. I have a ton of excuses. However, I just need to commit to kicking some ass. It boils down to the fact that I, at some point, just began to quit based on the F-ing cold, garbage weather. Anyway, I am back at it. Nutrition is also going to be on point as well as I have 66 days until the Franklin Lakes Tri. I don't want to be dragging my fat butt on the course. I need to lose weight and run fast.
