Week of April 18th-24th

  1. Monday: 9mi / 57min in Burlingame w/Griffin. Nice run. Had to follow the Boston Marathon by reading updates on letshate.com. Talk about frustrating! I can't believe I couldn't get it online or on tv, it's the biggest race in the world!! Very annoying to read what all the morons had to say about Hall, Desiree, and others. "No guts, didn't want it enough, poor strategy, blah, blah, blah." Great job everyone!

  4. Thursday: 17mi* / 2:02 in Saxton's River Trails w/Ferenc and the girls. Great run. We ran up some very cool trails, it was extremely windy. My left achilles is very sore. I'll have to watch it.
