fast friends

I thought I was going out way to fast because boj was right with me, and the pace felt hard. When we got to the mile at the bottom of Ash Hill I realized it was actually slow, this was going to be a tough day, Boj was taking it easy. I pushed hard up the hill to stay with some young buck, which seemed to work ok, because I was able to get past him on the down and he never came back up to me. The rest of the race just plain felt hard. This is what I get for taking the winter off from running then trying to jump back into it. It was a pr for the course, so I guess that is good. My spits, 6:04, 6:02, 6:05, 6:14, 3:06 for last half mile.

It's been a while.

I haven't blogged in a while, I haven't run in a while. Not much any way. I have been trying to get in a couple a week. Today is the first day to start keeping track. First goal, Vermont City, not to pr but to finish respectably and enjoy the day.
Angella is still planning on using it as her first marathon, so her training is starting to come along well. She has found a charity to raise money for research and treatments for non-small cell lung caner in non-smoking woman. Lung cancer is one of the leading causes of premature death in woman and more common for non-smoking woman to get than non-smoking men. Lung cancer, unfortunatly is one of the smallest recipients of funding for research and development of treatment and cures. Angella says she has got to the point that she is at for a reason and wants to put it to the best use she can. She wants to help others as much as possible and possible even herself if they can someday find a cure for her cancer. She has started a web site which I will be posting shortly for anybody who wants to help with a donation.
