despite the frigid conditions (low 20's and a wind chill in the single digits), i had a great race at the boston build-up 20k. not sure if it was the new course at fairfield (which actually included much of the original 20k route), or not having any expectations going in, but i took almost 10 full minutes off my 2011 result!
my only real goal was a sub 1:40 finish (basically a pair of sub-50 minute 10k's). not only did i come in under 1:40, but i broke 1:35 - and, if my unofficial watch time is correct, 1:33:57, i ran a sub 1:34 (7:34 pace)! i haven't done a boston build-up 20k that fast in a few years :O
here is my race report. here are the race results from hiteck/clubct.
