Adventures of a Downeast Maine runner.
Plan is to build the mileage slowly through February and then train for a May marathon.
5 miles @ 9:10 pace. 30 degrees or so outside. Wore long pants.

The slow build-up should suit Mike. That's a lot of jokes between now and May!
Sounds like Vermont Marathon?
It is a lot of jokes! Perhaps VT. Lots of options. Plan to keep the spring date wide open so I can race at peak. My timing is bad.
Andrew, I was thinking that. You were in brilliant form not that long ago - cranking out those 20 milers in 2 hours. You needed a marathon right then!
Very true. I've had timing problems before but not when I've been in that good of shape. So it cost me a bit more.I am even toying with the idea of signing up for multiple marathons Feb - May and just show up to the one that matches the peak. They'd have to be reasonably priced though!
