Thoughts on the run

  1. Eh, I guess we’ll do a 4 mile loop then I’ll add on
  2. Whoever gave the name ‘favorite’ loop to this run, must’ve loved hills
  3. This sucks.
  4. Ugh, people who honk and holler are stupid.
  5. Dang, they also miscalculated the run. It’s only 3.6 miles not 4.
  6. Guess we have to add on a lot!
  7. I’m sick of running on this road, I’ll finish the rest on the track.

 

 

How eventful running has been. My body is tired but hopefully I’ll still run well friday.

Did you hear about the Boston Qualifying times? Of course you did!

I think it’s great that they made them harder and took the times faster by 5 minutes. So now when I qualify I run 8:12 pace instead of 8:24.

I’ve always thought it was too easy to get in, especially since it raves about being so prestigious.

I won’t be trying to qualify for Boston for a few more years though! Maybe they’ll keep bringing the times down.

What is your opinion on it?
