No B.A.A Humbug Here!
Well, after some consternation because of an ongoing rotator-cuff injury that is wreaking havoc with my cross-country ski season, I signed up for the B.A.A. Boston Marathon today. There's no turning back now, and I have good incentive to be running out in the snow to build my base. If all goes well, this will be No. 5 for me at Beantown. My last time there was 2003 when temps hit 86 degrees. It was not pretty. That race is all about hills. I have been working out on the streets of Glen Ellyn, where there are plenty of ups and downs. You know I'll be doing some XC skiing as well, probably with one arm. Have a great week!
