yeah, I want to travel south this year

January 28, 2008

First day in Auburn, Alabama and the weather was perfect for running, 16 (61F) and sunny.  Tim Konoval and I met up with Pete Watson and the team and did a 15km hilly loop in a State forest this afternoon.  Seems like there is a bunch of good places to run in the area.

 The Boston race was a success.  I ran a PB of 7:53.51 and felt good doing it, must be the new spikes… the NB 1005 are seriously amazing though.  My km splits were 2:38, 2:39, 2:36.  Kyle King got the race going, I took over the lead at the 1500m mark (3:58) from Gillis and then got passed by Sean Quigley (who won in 7:52.47) with 600m to go.  I’m very pleased with how the season is going, I took a day off and now it’s back to hammering.

Here’s the interview the night before the race (BGP’s for Gillis) http://www.flocasts.org/flotrack/coverage.php?c=163&id=7847

and the race http://www.flocasts.org/flotrack/coverage.php?c=163&id=8077

After the race Gillis and I went right over to Boston Indoor Games and watched the rest of the races there.  I’m glad I didn’t race that 3000m as it would of forced me to go out faster than I want at this time of the season.  It’s too bad that race doesn’t take place in mid-February, but oh well, fun to watch nonetheless.  I really need to run a 3000m when I’m in race shape.. maybe an opportunity this summer will present itself…
