<p>After my 50K night run last weekend, this was a drop down weekend for me.  I spent Saturday marking trails for a 25/50K trail race that I'm organizing next spring.  Then Sunday I ran about 2 hours in Gatineau Park. </p>

<p>Glad to see the fall colors Markc7.  I noticed ours are starting to turn/fall.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4 hour run on Saturday in just lovely cool, sunny weather. It's the first run I've had in the 60 degree range since the Spring.   Sunday was another 2 hours on some local trails in a misty rain followed by an afternoon at Busch Gardens. I was disappointed that they closed all the soft-serve ice cream stores. Come on people! It's never too cold or rainy for ice cream! We eventually found a store that had hard pack ice cream at least. A few scoops of chocolate chip mint placated me (daughter enjoyed rainbow sherbet with sprinkles.)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If I'm reading the stats right, Marc finished Grindstone in the top 40. Congrats! Hope the weather was as nice as along the coast. Look forward to a report!</p>

<p>My own running took a back seat over the weekend. Took my sister and my nephew for a short trail run on Saturday, and then by his request, led my nephew on a road run this evening. He's 13 and its his first season of XC. He's the number 2 runner on his team, and finished 4th overall in his last race. He's really excited about running and has a strong future ahead of him if he keeps with the sport.</p>

<p>Looks like good times!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I ran two races this weekend, starting with the New Hampshire Marathon. Things were going great for until the 10th mile when I pulled something near my groin on a steep downhill. After a mile or two I adjusted my pace just to get me in sub-3 hours, but then it started hurting on the flats so after a while I backed off to 8 or 9 minute pace. I was able to pick it up to 6:40s for the last mile+ without too much discomfort, and came in at 3:09:32 I think.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/runtowin/5053525601/" target="_blank"><img alt="5053525601_02e5b0c0e7.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4149/5053525601_02e5b0c0e7.jpg" style=""></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, that was Saturday's race. On Sunday, I mostly skipped my warmup since the groin wasn't happy with me and I decided no time goals, just run what's comfortable and walk the downhills at the Maine Marathon. Thankfully, after the first mile I found that what was comfortable was around 7:30/mile pace, although I took the opportunity to run with a lot of different people (and to walk, in some cases) so most of my miles were in the 8-9 minute range. When I was running, though, it was at 7:30/mile. (I did run w/a relay runner late in the race at sub-7 pace for 3 or 4 miles until we came to a downhill.)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I saw a friend of mine that I used to run with a lot but haven't had much to do with for the past few years about 13-14 miles into the race when he was a few minutes behind the pace he needed for his BQ, and then caught him again in the last couple miles when he looked about how I must have at that point in my last marathon. So, I ran (/walked) him in to the finish line. I finished with a smile on my face and very comfortable with a new personal worst time of 3:50:35.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><img alt="46304_10150095863064746_571964745_7405001_2717417_n.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs200.ash2/46304_10150095863064746_571964745_7405001_2717417_n.jpg"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>That gives me a new PR of 7:00:07 for back-to-back marathons, which I should be able to beat pretty handily in the future if I can run them healthy. Other than the strained groin, nothing hurts or feels out of sorts, so I call it a successful weekend even if I didn't get my pair of sub-3s that I wanted.</p>
