Happy Boston Buildup Monday!

My hope was to get fit and see were SlowJoe was at and run with him, but I think I have fallen way too far off pace. I've never had such an important race, and I have never been less prepare for a marathon buildup. But I'm up for the challenge.

Sadly no run today given some time contraints and travel. I figured it was better if I spent my 70-75 minutes of running time getting to Toledo to see Megan (4-hour drive from here). Probably best as a fire has been lit under my...feet and I just need a couple short easy runs while I am there. I feel like I might get a little carried away otherwise.
