You are getting in some great training. Seems like you are in a lot better shape than you were last year at this time.

Thanks Andy. I feel a lot better than I did last year at this time. I just hope I'm able to continue to build for the next few months before Boston. I would really love to PR at Boston, then hopefully get drawn for SGM and set a second PR in the same year.

13 miles on a treadmill! I guess when you are running that fast there is not much time to get bored.

Nice run! Less than a month until your race. Wish I could come down and run that one.
