I got in a well needed twenty miler today 20:03 miles by the way of BOSTON BLOWOUT 30k wasn't a pretty day, rainy and windy. I was out there for allot longer than anticipated. I finished the 30K in about 3:22 not my best. I really felt good out there that was the main thing . I'm not sure if I can call this a true training run because if I had left my house this morning and did the training on my own it would have taken me at least 4:oohrs. But I did not feel like I was racing I was comfortable the whole time. I wasn't drop dead tired and yes today I did feel like I could have finish a marathon.
Today I am very thankful for all the volunteers out there helping out and 3 that I know very well Paul, Andrea and Julie!! Julie thank you for giving me that last push I needed I really was trying to procrastinate. I also want to thank Jim for keeping the clock on even after his published cut off time of 3:06. Special Kudos to Don and Kate and for tackling back to back 30K's.

Nice job. 3:06 cutoff? That's a bit tight, right at a 10 minute mile.

Nice job with the race. It sounds like you found just the right pace - faster than your long run pace, but not so fast that you felt taxes. I'm glad to see your running is coming back to you so well.
