so karen, dave and i ran the harvard pilgrim 10k on the 4th of July. mostly (ok, it was pretty much only) because you got to run thru the helmet and onto the field at gillette stadium, finishing on the 50 yd line. since patriots tickets are soooo expensive, this was my first, and probably last time to gillette stadium, and definitely as close as i'm ever going to come to the field ever again.
the race itself was not fun. it was like 80 degrees with 80% humidity when we started and i sounded like a wheezing vacuum by the 1 mile mark. my splits were as non-progressive as can be (8:15, 8:30, 8:45, 9:00, 9:15, 8:45) (hey, at least i picked it up at the end!) (total time: 55:48) but the pics...oh the pics!! i'm contributing it all to the compression sleeves, but i am preeeettty pleased with these pics, i must say.
also! make sure to check out karen's blog. she is less conceited than i, but will post a pic or two nonetheless, i'm sure.
