Sounds good! You think the two of you could make it on a Tuesday? (No problem for me, as I'm working for the nicest boss in America.)

@Thomas,
Nope.
For the first time in my life, I am only off on weekends.

Bizarre. (I used to run the 9am races on Sundays, then run like a son-of-a-bitch to catch a cab, get to the gym, change, and then get to work.)

whew.

@Joe Nation,
Why didn't you forget the 9 am race and run to where the cab dropped you off?

You could have had a lie-in and saved a few bucks and got your exercise and with no need to compare yourself with a son-of-a-bitch.

@spendius,
See what RP wrote above re: t-shirts.
There is also the added benefit of running behind several hundreds of women, all wearing tights and ponytails.

There's something odd about that. I had thought it might be something to do with women but not behind hundreds of them. What's the air quality like? It can't be all that fresh.

@spendius,
Running behind erm... 'tis a much better view. (I would try running backwards so I could see the frontsides of them but I know I would not last long before the shin splints kicked in)(No pun intended)(yes, it was intended, but I was too modest to admit it)

As for the freshness of the air, .......depends.....I've had some men pass me and I was made fully aware how easy it must have been for the ancient hunters to have been detected by distant bears. As a species, we stink.

did southie-2-brighton 10k #2 last night: 1 hr 26 min.
was ~ 80°F when i left the office, and felt it before i hit the half-way mark.
walked some, then felt a little light-headed, so sat for a few minutes.
recovered and finished strong.
happily no lower extremity issues this time...

That's a warning signal from your body which has no other way of articulating its displeasure.

I recommend you have a little snack of something, a banana or half an apple, about an hour before doing your late afternoon run. Your belly is empty at the start of that 80°F 10K trot and mid-way it's saying "Hey, when's dinner?"

@Region Philbis,
Perhaps you want to try starting out slower. It should help with both your legs and your cardiovascular system. Also, could you take your better half's Belt of Liquids with you? (Or whatever they call it. I just like "Belt of Liquids" for its superhero touch.) Nice job on the 1:26. I didn't race my first one that fast.

@Thomas,
There is an irony in that Pheidippedes, who legend says started the fad of long-distance running, was completely unaware of having a cardiovascular system.
