Have an awesome time - those running Boston


It has been a little while since I've updated this blog, but with so many people running boston including 1 running friend and many blogs that I read, I wanted to wish everyone luck and to have a great time.

Maybe, one day I'll be able to run it.  At my current age, I need to run around a 7:30mm pace for 26.2 miles . . . wow.  Wow . . . WOW.  It was hard enough to break four hours!  Or, I could wait like 20 years and keep my current pace.  Not sure which is easier.  :)

I am still running.  Just been busy.  I started a new job two months ago which takes some adjustment.  Then, of course, having a 15 month old baby keeps you busy when you are home.  But, I am running and trying to get faster.  I'm running my tempo and speed runs faster than before and so far been doing my long runs about 8mm to 8:20mm.  But, my long runs right now are short (only 8 miles this weekend).  As we increase the mileage, I wonder if I will be able to keep up the faster pace.  I think I really need to put in the work with my tempo and speed workouts.

My next marathon seems like it will be the SF Marathon.  I'm a pacer/coach for the south bay SF marathon group and I'm suppose to get a free entry.  So as long as that comes through, I'll be running that marathon.  I've never ran the SF marathon before, so I'm very excited about it.

I'll try to provide more updates on my training runs. Not sure when my next race will be.  There is a short 10K next month near my home, I might do just for the fun of it and to support a local race.
