Week of Fast Friends 4.5 Miler

March 17th (Monday): Easy 6 miles in Congress Park with the We Run the Capital (WRC) group. Easy slow run that aided the recovery of New Bedford well. Quality dinner at night. Chicken wrapped in bacon.

Baked with chopped up onions. Topped with chili powder, cayenne, and ground cinnamon.

March 18th (Tuesday): 3 miles (21:44) in the morning. Work 9am-5:30pm. We had a 24 hour shutdown so I was allowed to adjust my schedule accordingly. Boom. Another 6 miles (43:18) down in Albany before the lifting session. Chipotle for dinner.

March 19th (Wednesday): Work 6am-2:30pm. Run @ Fleet Feet with the local high school team. 9.5 miles (64:31) for total miles. 4 miles on my own. Another 5.5 miles with the team plus a little more. Free pasta dinner at the store. Boom again!

March 20th (Thursday): Solid 9 miles (61:31) in the evening.

March 21st (Friday): 7 miles (49:49) in Keene with Sears and Goup. Athen's for subs.

March 22nd (Saturday): Bagel for breakfast from the Fowler kitchen. Over to the race venue to use the restrooms, pick up the number and warm up with the group. 3 miles (21:35) on the first part of the course. Rocked the watch for the run.

Rolled on the course. Slowest in 3 years, but still grabbed the win. 5:09, 5:21, 5:14, 5:16, 2:33. 23:45 for a final time.

 Yeah. It was in the 30's and John Lennon is rocking no shirt behind me.

3.5 mile (26:30) cooldown with the group. Grabbed a mini charcoal grill on the prize table. Relaxed at Andy's house for most of the night before hitting up a few bars in Keene with the gang. Good times.

March 23rd (Sunday): Pub for breakfast. Killed pounds of food. Chilled and napped on the Fowler futon in the midmorning hours. Over to Ferenc's for a quality 18 miles (2:07:19) with Goup and Ferenc.

70 miles for the week. First quality week of miles with many more to come.
