Miss the snow yet? Probably not, because you are having so much fun on your vacation.
Don’t worry; I didn’t slack off because you are out of town… even though I did skip the L Street run yesterday. The schedule called for a “short” long run, 12.5 miles, so I decided to change things up a bit. I woke up and went for an easy 5 mile run. An hour later I headed over to Brockton to run the Paddy Kelly 5 Mile road race. It’s good to sign up for a race every once in a while. It’s different than a normal training run. You’re out there with a bunch of people trying to run their personal best. You push yourself a little bit harder. It went well but it didn’t turn out to be a new PR for me. I’ll have to try another one later in the year and maybe skip the prerace run.
They had a party afterwards and I got to talk to a few of the runners and watch the award ceremony. The winner ran it in 27:13. That’s really fast! They also had 8 runners over 70 years old. I hope to be one of them thirty years from now. Here are the overall results.
Keep smiling and having a good time!
