Women’s 10k Boston , 17 mile long run, getting stronger…..

Saturday, I ran the Women’s 10k Boston Run.  It was neat to see many women take over the streets of Boston.  Total runners 2367.

I like this race course a lot, because the majority loops around Memorial Drive with a great view of the Charles River. I love running along any body of water, but the scenery here in Boston is quite nice.  The race is an out and back race that starts and finishes at the Boston Common.  The weather was bit hot and humid for me, but overall, I had a good race. It was 68-70 degrees with sun.

    The first mile is down Beacon Street, the next few miles are along the Charles River in Cambridge, and then it’s up-Commonwealth Ave to the finish line.

Another 10k race done.

Monday …Barbell Class +  6 miles

  Tuesday LONG RUN DAY …..17-mile run…. (SEVENTEEN)… I have been gradually increasing my milage. .  All the big muscle group of the hip flexors and thigh muscles were definitely tired by the end, still it was a good run.  I am pleased with myself.

Other than running …   I am enjoying the outdoors.  Fall in New England is always pretty. 

Looking up to see the beautiful colors on the trees.    Love the crisp cool morning air.

Fall happens once a year, so I am taking it all in.  Be present. Scenery changing around you.
