    7 miles, including 2 x 1mile at 90%. Have now shifted to long sleeve lightweight top and cotton gloves for 48-51 degree temps. Submitted my app on Monday and was accepted for BAA #25 next April. Sam, any word yet?

    So have I. It was a chilly 46 degrees this morning, so I put on my long sleeve top, lightweight pants, and gloves.

    4 miles and a little change this morning. actually, it's my normal 3 mile run, my wife just measured it and told me it was really 4.2. so I am not as slow as I thought I was.

    Thanks man,

    In the middle of a pretty big week so I was stoked because I obliterated my old off road 5k pr (17:29).

    That's pretty good. Turns out that your old off road 5K is faster than my PB by exactly 10 secs. Thanks.

    Can't run for a week, at least. Pulled my groin. That, or an "athletic hernia". Argh. So, I guess that this week and maybe the next, I'll have to work on the stupid elliptical and the recumbent along with lots of adductor stretches. Sucks. I guess that I'll concentrate on my boxing, and particularly my handspeed and power, since footwork is probably going to exacerbate things as well.

    Thinking of buying a Windjammer.

    Congrats Sam!
    You earned it, and that is inspirational for us all!!!!

    I did 6 in the trails yesterday, first time I felt a glimmer of fitness in 5 months, my legs felt heavy still, but my breathing smoothed out around 2 miles. I ran sans garmin to just let my pace be dictated by how I felt. Turned out to be decently fast for where I am in recovering from surgery.
    Ill kick another 6 tomorrow in the early am, this time Ill shoot for 7.30 MM.

    Great, Sam! Really glad to hear it! Have you run Boston before? I have always considered it a privilege to be part of the BAA field. Make sure you include goods hill work in your training for it. 14mi today, including 2 x 1mi @ 90%. Sunny, 61 degrees. Fluffy Cumulus clouds. Light breeze off Lake Michigan. If it could be better, I don't know how. :D

    I ran 9 miles this morning. It was sort of an historic running tour of DC that took me past the Capitol, White House, and all the national monuments - well all except the new MLK Memorial. Oddly, at least to me, people aren't allowed to run in front of it; I did see the side of it, which satisfied me enough. It was a pleasant and scenic run with 60 degree temps.
