given the snow on saturday (and the forecast of a blizzard to come) we had relatively great weather to run the boston buildup 15k this morning. except for a decent patch of black ice on the hill we climb around 3.5 miles, road conditions were fine - and it was sunny to boot :D
as for the race itself, i was very pleased with my 1:13:37, 7:54 pace. my only goal was to bring it in under 1:15 - and i managed it (w/out any leg speed to speak of). i actually went out too fast - with a pair of sub-7:30 miles. but i knew that the mid-course hills would bring it back down to a more realistic number in short order. in fact, my 10k split was 49 minutes - the 7:54 pace i would hold for the final 5k :D
next up - the broadway ultras society 3 hour run next saturday.
here are the race results from clubct.
here are the rest of my photos up on facebook. thanks to tony for the start photo - and ted for getting me at the finish :D
