Lots to talk about

Who is that strange man in shorts?! He is saying 'What kept you? I already have 5 miles in!'
Make that 3 strange people, one with bells on, ready for an early morning jaunt...

Along a quiet snow covered back country road ...
With a beautiful layer of snow still sticking to the trees.

What a great way to end the week by getting together with some fellow runners for a long run! It was such a nice run that I barely remember the running, we did 17 miles in about 2:30 at an easy 9:00 or so pace. The conversation just floated us along while we cruised along in sort of an unconcious running state and it seemed it was over in a few minutes (but the watches beg to differ).

So what did we talk about? Well the usual, everything about running including training plans, Lydiard, Boston, races, marathons, diets, Cabot Trail, families, running injuries, whiners (you know who you are ;-) etc. It was great but over too quickly and we all agreed to do it again soon once the holidays are over.

Total for this last week of buildup training was 55 miles in 8hr 15min of running with a total year to date of 2039 miles. Tommorow I will start my Boston 2006 training off with a bang by having a rest day !!

Looks like Andrew made it up for another visit. Great pictures and the lights look good too.

Wonderful pics. Man you guys live in some pretty country. I didn't see a Jiffy Lube or a Walmart in the background. Let me know if you want to see what they look like. I hear they are few and far between up yonder. Good luck with the ramp of Boston training.

What a good time! It took me all day to recover though. About 7pm I finally started to feel really good - rather than the weak shaky feeling that persists all day after a long run.

So glad you didn't wear that bell on the run. We would have fed you to the bears!

The pictures make me want to get out and run in the snow, but I would have to drive a bit to find some. Sounds like you have had a good year of running. Good luck with the upcoming training.
