22 More Days.....

Ran 23 miles today with w/roughly 400 feet of elevation gain btwn miles 18 & 21. Was really nice to soak feet in ocean at La Jolla Shores afterwards. Brings the total weekend miles to 33. Now relaxing with Lynn at home in San Diego enjoying the sun, view, and happy to be done with my last "long" run before Boston. Only 22 more days...wahoo!

23 More Days Until Boston Marathon - April 18, 2011

Training for this year's Boston race has been challenging for me with a lot of international travel and a couple cold/sinus battles. However, I have been able to get in some great long runs and running injury free.

Received race package from Boston this week saying my bib number is 5035. Excitement is definitely building and I'm really looking forward to having a good race this year.

Tomorrow we run our last "long" run = a hilly 22 miler in La Jolla that starts with scenic run along the coast then turns inland to circle Mt Soledad. Did a hilly 10 mile tempo run today so the 22 miler tomorrow is all about putting in the distance at an easy pace.
