So, having finished a wonderful Cross Country "season" where they let me run with the fast guys, it's time to start training for Boston. Saturday's Cross Country Club National Event was fantastic. It was a treat to have it held in Seattle this year and an absolute honor to be able to run with so many fast runners. There were teams from all over the United States including: Boulder, Atlanta, several from Boston, several from New York, Seattle, and lots of other places. There were 356 runners in my race including a team of men over 80. Talk about inspirational! I ran hard, did my best, had a great time, and didn't get hurt. My 4 goals - check, check, check, and check.
Now it's time to break out the new shoes, hit the pavement for an 8 mile run which will include 4 miles at 15k pace (7:25). The just passed full moon is out, it's 26 degrees, and it's nice to actually start the training plan.
Fundraising is going great as I'm now over $2,500 and plans for the wine tasting party are coming into focus thanks to dear friends.
Time for a run!
