Unusual run: I took a nap after work. My friends Zach and Meg called me at about 9:45 for drinks but I hadn't run yet... so I decided to meet them. I ran the 5 miles to their place... had 3 beers and watched Poltergeist and then at 1:00 AM ran the 5 miles home. I put all the miles in today's log cuz I plan on running today/tomorrow.

OK... I have maded my decision. I am going to go to Boston and run this Marathon! I wasn't going to, but I paid for this race, I'm feeling a LOT better although I am still not 100%. My training has been horrible, but if I don't break 2:50, it is no big deal. I'm just going to go out there and do the best that I can. No expectations... finish it, run hard and hope that I do well. I got hooked up on the hotel! $39 bucks a night at the Holiday Inn... I have two double beds reserved for Sat, Sun and Mon... If anyone needs a bed we can stay for $20 bucks a night each! Let me know. Now I need to book my flight! YAY!!!

Late night run through Vail Village and the Country Club in the dark, the cold and the snow. I loved it. Felt better than I have in a long time.

Ran a long run on the High Line Canal. It has been too long. I really enjoy my long runs out there. It was windy and I finished at 8:45 so it was dark for the last few miles.

My HR is still very elevated for such an easy effort. Hmmm. Still not sure about Boston. I'm getting better... Slowly.
