yeah, I want to travel south this year
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
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…
