I have run 320 miles on the year so far, which includes today's 7 miler.  We have been getting pounded with snow this month and it was my first run off the mill in a couple of days.  It was a glorious lunch time run. 29 degrees, blue sky, and barely any wind.

Pace: 7:54, 7:44, 7:41, 7:12, 7:01, 7:01, 6:38

Out on the road at 3:45am.  I have a lunch meeting today and my youngest has a student led parent conference that my wife and I will be attending at 5:15pm.  So the ridiculously early time was my only option.  I want to fall asleep as I type this right now.

7:35 avg. - lots of deer out and about this morning

I was a wimp today and did a 4 miler on the treadmill instead of outside.  I just didn't feel like dealing with the 16 mph winds and 24 degree temps.  I'm looking forward to the Spring.

I'm planning on running Stu's 30K on March 5th with my co-worker Jim.  We figured why not get 18 miles on our legs during an extended lunch.  Besides our feeling fatigued within the first couple of miles, we ended up with a 7:45 avg over 700+ feet of gain.  I'll take it.

Decent wind in Devens MA today.  Blue sky and sun was shining.... no complaints from me.  

Just as I was heading back in from my run, Daniel from our Network Support group was heading out for his.  I quickly packed up a snowball and launched a high arching lob.  It hit the sidewalk about 3 feet ahead of him.... just missed :)  7:02 avg. for the jaunt

65 degrees out.  I think it's approaching a record, if not a new record for MA in February.  7:10, 7:09, 7:03, 7:02, 6:29, 6:07

Yesterday I had the day off and my wife and I watched our girls race on the Indoor track.  Maggie is 13 yrs old and Paige is 11 yrs old.

We had a great time at the Reggie Lewis Arena yesterday, but it was a rust buster for both girls as they haven’t been doing much this winter.  It was their first time racing on a track and they both have a bit to learn.

Paige was first to race the mile.  (She was super nervous and had to use the facilities a couple of times prior to the gun)  They didn’t have enough girls for each age group, so they ended up putting the 10 entrants in one race.  The leaders went out hard and Paige went with them for the first lap.  I had to tell her to tuck in to the first lane on her second lap, as she was running in lane 3 and working too hard.  From there, she started to noticeably slow.  Her fitness just wasn’t where it needed to be for a fast mile race.  I’m really proud of her for finishing and not dropping out.  The 10th girl dropped out.

Next up was Maggie’s 400M race.  Maggie wasn’t as nervous, but I didn’t know what to expect since she has no track experience.  She ended up running in fourth for the majority of the race.  Coming off of the last turn and onto the straight, she kicked it home for a nice 3rd place finish. (section 3)

Both girls ran the 200.  Paige had more rest between the mile and 200 and Maggie ran the 200 fairly quickly after her first race.  That being said, Paige had a bit of redemption after her mile.  This time Paige had the better race and Maggie seemed to struggle.  All in all, it was a great day. (section 3 & 5)

7 miles & 1.5 home after a break

I was happy to find out that Maggie & Paige were out doing their 2  mile run when I came home. Everyone got their exercise in..... now time to fly Paige's drone.

Feeling tired.  New England weather is crazy.  Yesterday it was pushing 70 and today with the 25mph winds the temp was 30 degrees.  I ran in a singlet and shorts yesterday, and pants, longsleeve, gloves and hat today.  Whacky stuff.  7:37 avg.
