21 mi @ 10:am. Start temp 42, finish temp 58 with partly cloudy skies and a whole bunch of sunshine. I can say it wasn't my best long run but it was interesting. I'm trying out a new hydration system and checking to see if it's compatable with my short, fat, slow, old man style of running. The jury is still out, I'll update my findings in the near future...

 

49 days till my 11th Boston Marathon and my 50th Marathon overall ! And my congrats to "Allie" for running a great marathon at the Woodlands yesterday!

21 mi during my mid morning long run on my hardest course! 2 times around from home base up Dimple Dell over the top and down Wasatch Blvd back to the home base. I really feel good about my training getting to this point in my training cycle headed to The 118th running of  The Boston!!!!  42 days till showtime! With 6 full weeks of training left,my training focus will now shift from endurance to speed training...

22 mi @ the approximate time I will start and run the Boston Marathon in just 20 days and a wake up. I surly hope the weather in Boston isn't like it was here in Sandy. Too much heavy wind, rain, snow, hail...for the entire duration of my last mega long run before Boston....
