The "It" Route

Nice run this morning to burn off all of the traditional Thanksgiving Day grub that I mowed down yesterday. Blaine is in town also so he joined me for a big chunk of the run.

The goal was to hit several landmarks from Stephen King's "It". I ran from my in-law's house in Brewer over to the Paul Bunyan statue, where I met Blaine. From there we ran past King's house, then the Standpipe, then the Barrens, then the library and then the canals downtown.

Chilly out. It was in the teens throughout our run, but thankfully not much wind for once. Took a few miles to feel warmed up but it's beneficial to get used to the colder stuff early on and embrace it. There'll be plenty of runs in the cold for snowshoe racing season and the Boston training cycle in general. No room for wimps if you live in Maine.

Leg's felt yesterday's race a little. Easy pace throughout which allowed for some good conversation. Nice to get caught up with Blaine, life is quite good for the both of us right now, we had nothing but fun things to talk about.

Ran 11.7 miles @ 8:31/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Very hilly.
Mid to upper teens, sunny.
Saucony Virrata, long tights, fleece pullover, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves.
