If anyone wants to track me at Boston I on Monday I am in wave 2 corral 5, the wave starts at 10:25 so I should hit the start line at 10:30 or so. All you have to do is text my bib number which is 13768 to 345678 and you will get text update every 10k and the finish.

I am not feeling very confident about a pr let alone a sub 3:20 but I am going for it anyways. The pneumonia took more out of me than I thought, my longer runs have been a real struggle but I hoping the crowds and days will give me enough boost to get through it.


PR or no PR, its going to be a once in a lifetime race. Crowds will be over the top, Boston has a reputation to uphold, and they will not be intimidated. I don't think you gave yourself enough of a taper or rested enough during your bout with pneumonia, but I won't count you out. Have fun, run hard, and see what happens. But please, take it easy for the next few days. Low miles, some strides and maybe 2 or so miles at race pace to keep sharp. You want to go in with a full tank. Sleep well this week, eat right, etc...

I'll be following you. Good luck.

#540- 2 recovery miles. Legs pretty stiff

#541- 30 minute bike to loosen up the legs, then 4 mile run, still in recovery mode, but got in a solid pool session in afterwards.

Saturday I was in the last mile of a 20 mile run and got a pain in my upper thigh. Sounds like it would be a groin strain. Not sure how I would get that from just running. Anyone else ever have anything like this?
Still been able to keep running.


I've gotten cramping in my inner thigh after long hard runs, but never up in the groin area. I could see it happening on trail runs or uneven surfaces though. If you are still running, and its getting better, not worse, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I just signed up to follow you. I can't even imagine the emotion that will be present for everyone crossing that finish line.

Monday - #260 - 3 miles
Tuesday - #261 - 4 miles

Day 876, not sure how I got out of whack yesterday, it should've been 875, anyways 6.2 miles today. I have one run in the morning tomorrow and then off for the airport and Boston. I'll get my runs in there over the weekend and will be flying back Tuesday. No matter how fast I run Monday I will have a great time and enjoy the day. I am sure the crowds will be really loud. I have written thank you on, my name and bib number on several notes that I will be handing out randomly along the course to spectators and volunteers.

#543- 2 mile run in between swim (2500 yd main set) and 75 min bike. Really came close to bailing on the bike workout, still feeling fatigued from last weekends race! When I found my bike computer out of battery it almost sealed the deal. I pushed the bike till late, just finished now, and the old adage held true, "you never regret a workout when its done."

Day 877, 2.2 miles with some strides. I'll be heading for the airport in about an hour. Looks like decent weather for the marathon, low 60's for a high. A little breezy though but it should not be a head wind except for a couple of miles. It will sure beat the 90's I ran it in two years ago.

Can't say I'm not jealous. Same old routes for me.

#544- 6.2 mi.

#545- 4 miles very easy. I've been ignoring a knee pain for about 2 and a half weeks. I ran in different shoes today. I've been in Hokas for probably close to a year, they are pretty much all I have in rotation. Its towards the back, inside, bottom of the knee, and it hurts when I apply pressure and stiffness comes and goes during runs. Its nothing that I can't easily push through, but its a nagging pain that I don't want getting worse, and last night I was feeling it lying in bed, so its got my attention now.

So I am probably going to work in a different model of shoe, and see how it goes. Hokas are a bit soft, and the knee probably tweaks a bit more in them. Also, I'm going to see if I can stay off the roads as much as possible.
