Stu's 30k - 18.64 miles - 800 feet of gain

2:10:44 - My watch indicated that I ran 18.72 miles and gave me an overall pace of 6:58 which I was happy with.  The timing mats gave me an average pace of 7:00.... a little bit of a bummer because the sub 7 pace looks so much cooler.  Super windy and cold, but very fun.

Mouth open, crossing the finish line like a running zombie....

Feeling decent two days post race.  Just a tiny bit of residual soreness.

Officially registered for the Sugarloaf marathon in Maine.

A couple slow and a couple less slow.  It was nice to get off road a bit on this one.  Ground is still kind of mushy from all the snow melt and rain, but totally worth it.

Early am run with Amy.  She wanted to get the blood flowing, and apparently I wanted to get the snot flowing.  I'm definitely getting a cold.

The family and I drove into Cambridge and parked a block away from the Charles river.  We crossed a bridge and ended up running three miles on the opposite side of the river.  Amy and I were up for more, but Maggie and Paige were done.  Oh well...... 3 mile walk back to the car.  Cold but fun day.

7 miles

Solo.  Right after a Jalepeno burger.  Suprisingly enough, my pace didn't suffer too much.

I tried to push during the second mile, but it was a losing battle.  Lungs not opening up to capacity and just generally feeling weak.

My lungs still aren't where they were pre-sickness and I am feeling a bit weak.  At the start of the steepest climb of this run, I had a wicked coughing fit and my lungs sounded like a baby rattle for the rest of the run.  On a good note, the weather was beautiful.  On a bad note, we are expected to get 12+ inches of snow in the next couple of days.  Suck it mother nature....

In the snow & rain mix before any real accumulation.  Rolling terrain.  Started in the mid 7's and ended in the mid 6's.
