This evening’s run was on the Little Blue Trace Trail and was really enjoyable. I love running this trail and tonight was no exception. It looked as if the rain clouds kept most people off the trail because I only passed a handful of runners and bikers. I was able to get most of my run in before it started raining, and even at that, the cool rain was a refreshing way to end the last mile. The run was 5.09 miles in 40:43.
I also had an exciting development this afternoon. A few weeks ago I submitted an article idea to Active.com. Today one of their editors contacted me to see if I was still interested in contributing running related articles. I plan to finish up the paperwork tonight and will keep you posted if things develop in this area.
With the Boston Marathon this past Monday, I have been spending some time reading and learning more about the marathon itself. I just finished watching the replay of the 2012 race on UniversalSports.com. The May edition of Runner’s World also has a couple of good Boston Marathon related articles. It is truly amazing to watch world-class athletes run so efficiently and make it look so easy.
