JFK 50 Miler

Feb 5th, 2010 - Training - Lowell - 3.5

Day 36 - I hate to do this, but I have to give Fil some props tonight. He broke 200+ miles, in total, for the year earlier this afternoon! He's currently on pace to break 2,000 miles for the year!

I am currently sitting on 188 after tonight's 3.5 miler around the Winter Wonderland that is Lowell. Can you say human dogsled race?

I'm projected to break 200 miles by Sunday afternoon with two races planned for the weekend.

Fil, to keep you grounded, Glenn S. is currently sitting at 346 miles!! for the year. He's projected to break 3,500 miles for the year!

Glenn, to keep you grounded, Forrest Gump left his front porch in Green Bow, Alabama early the morning of July 5, 1976 because he "felt like running" - his entire transcontinental running marathon commenced on July 5, 1976 at 7:00 AM EDT (approx.) in Greenbow, Alabama and terminated on September 19, 1979 at 8:00 PM MDT (approx.) in Monument Valley, Utah. For those keeping track at home, that's 3 years, 2 months, 14 days and 16 hours.

Unexpected occurrence of the day: Got a call from Boston Casting to audition for a New Balance commercial next Wednesday in Boston! Are you male? Yep. Are you running more than 20+ miles per week? Yep. Are you a heel-striker? Nope, but I can act like I do. Are you 6 feet tall? Nope, but I can run in heels! At least it'll be an interesting experience.

Interesting facts that only runners would care about:

Jason - 188 miles, 23 hrs 17 mins, 7:26 pace
Fil - 204 miles, 27 hrs 3 mins, 7:58 pace
The Razor - 346 miles, 47 hrs, 8:09 pace
