456 miles, and approximately $74,000 in tolls later, we have finally arrived in Boston. Long trip, but not unbearable. The weather is in the mid-70s, which is welcome relief from the hellfire temps we left behind. Hopefully the weather cooperates for the crazy collection of activities over the next few days.
Week 2 was another good week in terms of miles and overall leg health. Started off with a brutal 12-mile long run on the sun that I covered in an earlier post, but I redeemed myself with the runs for the remainder of the week.
Got in another tempo workout, which is helping speed up my normal pace a bit. Still have some work to do on maintaining a consistent pace across miles. Nothing fancy planned for week 3 in terms of training. Main focus is just getting in the miles while we’re traveling, and not letting running interfere with any of the planned activities and the rare opportunity to spend extended quality time with my family. Really hoping this trip lives up to my wife’s expectations, and provides some lasting memories for my kids. Road trips with my family are some of the more vivid memories I have from my childhood, so if all goes well we’re leaving an imprint on the kids – Griswold style.
