Plan was to do the run easy, like in the 8:00-8:30/mile range. We ended up going a bit faster (7:28/mile), which I didn't have a problem with since the legs were feeling better than expected and I didn't feel it would hamper the harder workout I have planned for Wednesday.
We were dropped off at Wellesley College and began the run from there. First few miles were pretty slow as we warmed up and talked about writing, racing and a multitude of other topics. I haven't run the course since the marathon last April, and every now and then I would see something that would trigger a forgotten memory. Can't wait to do it again this April.

I'm sure that's bad luck.
