I got buried with work (and work travel) this week - but I'm doing a mini-taper for a Saturday race, so it kinda worked out....traveling the next three weeks as well, gonna take some discipline to stick to my normal training.
"Twilight 4-Miler" in Ashburn, VA; a community not too far from the house. Race is unique for two reasons; it's 4 miles; and it starts at 7:30PM. Spoiler Alert: I finished in 25:00 (6:09 pace for 4.08 miles) in 84 degrees weather (2nd place AG). Partied afterward, in that "Runner's Party" kinda way....full report posted separately.
