Another week closer to the start of the USATF NE road running season. Another 70+ in the books. I hit 76 miles last week with one day short (6 miles). Dan's improptu suggestion that we do the 6k course as a warm-down helped bolster the mileage.
Nothing really interesting this week other than the race (Bradford Valentines) and the excellent hike (The Moats).
I posted over 100 pictures on photobucket: http://s153.photobucket.com/albums/s209/davedunham/2009%20Moat%20traverse/
I'm looking forward to the DH Jones next week and hoping to go under 60 minutes.
Splits from my various times at DH Jones:
1999-510/456/528/529/518/512/456/521/506/531=52:27 (the dirt road was very icy)
2001-531/502/544/549/538/531/511/527/531/540=:55:04 (snow,ice,rain, roads awful)
Picture from the past.....
U-Lowell XC team in 1986. Me, John McKenna, Jason Cakouros, Mike Woodman, Coach Davis. Back row: John Cotter, Rick Dawe, and (blocked) Bob Darrah.
Woody and Jason are still racing, the others are not (to my knowledge). Jason finished second last week in the masters mile at the Reebok Invite.
