Boxer loses 10 lbs. in 2 days to get down to 165, and wins!!!   WOO HOO!!!  Must be nice being young.

So anyway...................wait I am changing my Title..


Man was that a hard course.  Are you kidding me??  We start off up a hill.  I say something to the effect like ohhhh that will get your heart-rate up.  A girl says just wait.  Then she falls over her feet.  YIKES!!  We get up that hill, and I see another 800 Meter hill.  Before the climb of that hill there is a turnoff for the 5K.  Boy did that look inviting.  So that 800 M hill is just one in a long line of 9.375 miles of hills.

I don't feel like blogging today, so keeping it short.  I pick up the effort, at mile 5, but not necessarily the speed.  (against the wind)  I thought of trying to draft off a girl ahead of me, but she was too small, and I felt strong.  I went on my own, and took the wind.  I eventually caught up to Jerry at the 8-something mile mark, and kicked it with a 1/2 mile left.  (The only non-hill section)  :)

Jim, beat me by 4 minutes.  :)  Told you he was strong.  :)

Kudos to the two 80 year old guys duking it out under a 10 min/mile pace.  How GREAT is that??

Gayle won the Masters women.  Of course!!  No one around here can touch her.  She isn't even in top form yet.

My pace was 8:05.  On a regular course I think it would be 7:40.  That is how hard it was.  I didn't tell Jim, because I didn't want to put pressure on him.  He was 7:39 pace.  I am thinking 7:20'ish for Boston.  Not bad for someone over 55.  :)

Slept most of the day.  Went to hang out with some friends, and slept over there.  Hope they enjoyed my conversation.  :)

cya!!   :)
