Last winter, there were only a few days worthy of wearing knit gloves. This year, we have had days in the 30s. And here we are in the middle of March, and I'm showing up to track in a beanie, long leg tights and a pair of the Boston Marathon Towns gloves. I ran well, without a … Continue reading Last chill?
8 miles. Last week I skipped the sprints, so it happened today. I ran the first 5 with John Reback, he is healing from the Achilles issue. Good enough to run in front of me or zip me from behind on each one. There wasn't much of a wind, unlike the last few weeks. Maureen, Mary … Continue reading Chasing at sprints

I ran two laps with John and Lanae, John then … Continue reading Post race hills – yup!
5 mi. Possibly my best track workout in months! I arrived early enough to run a lap with Paul and talk Olympic tri girls before anyone else arrived. With a renewed interest in running as good as I can, I paced with Erica on all of the longer than 400m intervals, then speed up with … Continue reading Descend
