Sweat in the streets in the town of Manchester
Another week done and another good step in the right direction. When your season is only 9 weeks long and you start out injured and cross-training, each week can be a big difference. I’m really looking forward to taking my time with each step when I resume training in December after Nationals. There won’t be the sense of urgency I feel now to get ready to race.
On Wednesday I’ll fly out to Manchester, Connecticut (ya, not New Haven), race on Thursday and fly home Friday. Yes, I get another Thanksgiving. It’s going to be fun to see friends I haven’t seen since the summer and last year. Running a race with 10 000 people in it and tons of people lining the course is always a blast. There are live bands and lots of drinking going on at 10AM. Porches (and a couple roofs) are filled with people cheering throughout the 4.75 mile race.
Race update should come on Friday here. Results should be posted at http://www.manchesterroadrace.com/
