3 mi @ 10: am, @56 degrees, partly cloudy w/lots of sunshine. 20 days and a couple of hours till Ragnar Las Vegas and only 183 days till Boston 2015.

I was on the BAA website and I noticed that there were only 356 runners invited to the 2015 Boston because they had 10 or more consecutive runs at Boston.. I thought there would be more than that! And I was certainly surprised when the BAA invited me to register back in August.
