The wind and cold are getting a bit old (a poor but true rhyme) but this did not dissuade 30+ of our runners from working out yesterday on Track Tuesday. Phil, Will, and I got things started in the A.M. and actually had better conditions. Some of the evening group opted for off-track speed work. It was great to see Bill B pushing and pulling track rookie Wade for the 300s and was well as some longer tough intervals by Scott, Cody, and John M… and although I will note this below – Otis WAS at the track last night ! Another shout-out thanks to Sarah who submitted all FMTC Boston times for yesterday’s LNP sports. Despite the wind and dropping temps, 20 PBRs were consumed (one by Denise) – with 10 taken back to storage for next week. It was great seeing some of our Boston runners stop by to share some their stories of marathon Monday including the good (fast finishes) and bad (cramping after the Newton Hills) and the ugly (gastrointestinal issues and time-eating trips to the porta-johns). Hoping to hear much more Boston lore and drama next week at Cartel and of course there will be a few hit hards and many hug hards. -Jeff
