A missed run in Boston

The weather in Boston was a chilly 20 degrees this morning with a wind chill of 7. I decided not to take to the streets since my colleagues and I spent a good bit of time in a pub last night. This trip was more for a celebration then really an opportunity to train in the cold weather but I do admit I feel like I missed out not running around the water this morning.

Not sure when I'm going to get back up to Boston. My Boston marathon qualifying time is now 3:15 since I'm a bit older then I was last year. So the marathon idea is still on. ING Georgia Marathon and then maybe another marathon in April. Good long runs would make for a great foundation for racing next season so the good out weighs the pain an suffering that will go into the training that will need to go into getting me ready for March 21st.

Looking forward to heading back to Atlanta and getting some miles in before Monday. Long slow miles will be the theme for a while. Might try getting some long distance swims in as well to keep the body healthy for next year.
