A good day, a really good day, and a really cold day. Ran a strong even-paced 8k at the big Shamrock Run in Buffalo, finished in 28:41, 5:46 mile pace, 13th overall, 1st master. On a frigid, in the teens windchill and windy, ran a very encouraging race, significantly under 6 minutes per mile, happy especially after a lackluster 10 miler a couple of weeks ago and still with mostly distance and without much of speed work this winter. Things look like they’re coming together for Boston. A very good day.
