I was trying out a new pair of shoes today. Adidas Adios Boosts.  It is always fun to run in a new pair of shoes and today was no exception.

TM

1 mile warm up 8:00

7 miles 7:00

2 miles 6:50

1 mile 6:40

This run felt great.  Nothing felt hard or fast, just nice and easy 11 miles on the TM.

Here are our goal splits with even calculations for the up hills and monkey on our backs the last 6 miles. The last portion is even calculated out to .33 instead of .2 to figure in the extra distance the course had last year. I sure would love to have you running next to me and I know your such a machine and with what you have been doing lately you should be able to make it this year!

That is impressive Jeff. I'm thinking about just shooting for a 3:10 so I don't crash and burn and fail to BQ (3:15). You on the other hand should have no problem with the sub 3 this time around. You have had a great training cycle. I am starting to peak at the right time, but I just don't think I have been able to get in enough miles.
