Celebrating 5 years of Ironman participation

Boston is for Runners


If Virginia is for Lovers, then Boston is for runners. 

While I spent plenty of time in running around the greater DC region, never have I seen so many runners throughout a day as I have in my first three weeks here in Boston.  From the wee hours of the morning to the chilly late nights, I see runners constantly.  Maybe it’s that whole marathon thing…  It’s definitely the place to be if I want to improve my time for next year.  I’ll have to check out Bill Rodger’s running center, Boston Running Company, and Marathon Sports.

Running in the cold is not nearly half as bad as I thought it might be.  I took a 10 mile run on Sunday with my friend Wynter.  We jogged along the river and around Fresh Pond, then back to Brookline.  I’ve got the earband and base layers down! 

What I’m still looking for are some suggestions on the best winter running tights.  Got recommendations?

  1. I happened to pull up your blog while researching some running stuff online. I wanted to recommend some cold weather tights that I SWEAR by, Mizuno make great cold weather gear. Good luck with your training!

  2. Thanks! I’ll check out the Mizuno tights. I’ve been using the Sugoi Speedster tights and have been pretty satisfied.
