Sunday Long Run

Geraldine returned to the sunday group, and we had a fairly good sized bunch. Jeff, Rudiger and I went out again early for an easy 5 1/2. Then we met up with Christina, Geraldine, Ann, Ed and newcomer to the Sunday Long Run, Scott. Scott set a good pace that I tried to keep up with on the Chapman loop. The hills proved a bit difficult, but we made it to the top, and waited just a few minutes for Jeff, Ann and Ed. We all cruised down Jordan, and went up Old Concord Road for about 3/4 of a mile or so. Then back down, meeting up with Christina and Geraldine. Scott and I pushed the pace a bit the rest of the way, going up George Street, then down Lincoln to Marlboro and to Main, for a total of about 17. I ran hard for the last mile or so, and felt good. We all met back at Brewbakers for the usual coffee and the rest. About 38 miles for the week. Next week a bit more, with 20 for Sunday.


  1. It is great fun to join up with a group and go out to log some miles. James is "upping" our mileage as he prepares for Boston. Some of us are getting ready for the Half at Hampton on 2/21. We average around 10 minute miles, but we can break off into smaller groups for faster and\or slower speeds. I look forward to the coffee as much as the run. Cheers. Jeff

  2. Up George St???? Are you crazy?

  3. Hi James! This is Lacey ("objectsevents" is my blog user name).

    Geraldine sent me the link to your blog! I have had one for 1.5 years now and love being able to post my runs, etc. on it. I added you to my "subscription" so I'll see when you update. Sounds like you have had some great training runs!!! You must feel pretty ready for Boston! Great paces, too :)
