      I love spring too...definitely a season of renewal and rebirth. I wish you the best of everything on your trip to Boston. Have a blast and soak up the atmosphere...and run strong.

      Christie, I was thinking about your DF. I have had only one, but that was due to a course marking error, so I was acutally DQed. However, I felt the disappointment. You have had a number of DF's since I have been following you on the DM. Another way to look at it, is, YOU HAVE PUSHED YOURSELF TO THE VERY LIMIT! That is something I have not done. Your are one of the most courageous runners I have ever met! You pushed to the wall, now bounce back my friend! You are going to smoke Boston!!

      I took the edge off and I decided to enjoy running Boston, I would've likely been miserable pushing myself to the limit in the heat in the very race I worked so hard to get to. I may never go back, but that's ok, I had a most epic time in Boston on an important day. You want your experience at Boston to be a memorable one, and not because of the time you ran, but of the day and experience itself. I am personally jealous you get to run the race, the whole world will be watching I'm sure.

      Christie, I understand the voices in your head and you're just unleashing here, but please know you'll be just great at Boston. You're mentally tough and besides mega endurance you do have speed. Runs sometimes suck before races, but you're going to have a phenomenal time at Boston whether you PR or not. Rest up beautiful friend!

      I can certainly understand your feelings. The good news is, we all have these days/periods. You have plenty of time to be ready for Boston. And we ALL know you've got this. Boston will seem like a sprint compared to what you normally do. Even with the series of hills culminating in Heartbreak Hill, it's a negative elevation race. You have the conditioning. Positive thoughts will carry you the rest of the way to your PR! Above all else, enjoy it!

    Walked in my regular Sketchers Mules and my feet weren't too happy by the end. Guess I won't be throwing those into the suitcase for Boston for walking around and sight seeing!

  12. I am grateful for running partners who help you get off your bum and move the legs again when you've had too many days in a row you let life get in the way of any actual training!

      You'll have to tour Shasta Dam - there is a lot of water there too.

      Sounds like a wonderful field trip. It reminds me of a tour I took of the Hoover Dam many years ago. It was cool knowing you were actually in the dam. Good stuff.

      59 is crazy compared to what it feels like. I think Heartbreak is 92-ish? but it's a bit longer so the grade feels pretty similar. We got lucky and hit the light green at Federal Way...which never happens. I usually just stay on the right until traffic clears and then drift across all 5 lanes of traffic!!

      Fantastic run Christie. Great pace here. The biggest challenge with Heartbreak Hill is that it comes at a tough time. I found that if you are running well to that point, the hill is nothing to worry about. If you are already struggling, it can be a bit more of a challenge. I know you will just zip right up that thing! :-)
