17 days until Boston! I've started my three week taper as the hard weeks of running are over. This picture was taken towards the end of my long run last Sunday morning. The sun had just risen and lit up the HR windmill. This landmark is probably the most famous one in HR.
The Boston Marathon has a cool program where you can follow runners throughout the race. If you're interested, you can either go to their website on raceday and enter my bib # (5305) for a real-time update, or you can sign up in advance for the AT&T Athlete Alert Program and receive email or text updates at the 10K, Half, 30K & Finish. If I'm on pace for finishing in 3:05, I should be hitting the following splits at those distances.
10K (6.2 mi) = 43:55
Half (13.1 mi) = 1:32:34
30K (18.6 mi) = 2:11:46
Finish (26.2 mi) = 3:05:00
I've been battling a cold this week and a tweaked back from moving furniture at my office on Monday. Thank goodness these
