4.50 miles in Boston (runner profile)

Long story short, at the suggestion of Dave McGillivray (race director Boston Marathon) I had an intensive stress test at Mass General Hospital's Athlete Performance Center last Friday. Got results and the doctor told me I pushed the stress test harder than 95% of all clients (includes a who's who of Boston athletes), that my heart was strong and not the reason for my belabored breathing issues. Cleared for running but still need to find the solution. (Tue 4) / Total Miles 698.89 since 7/4/18

When I started training for my first marathon, I was told to find a point 1.5 miles from my house and back home would be 3 miles. I had no idea how far 1.5 miles was but just kept driving and found myself in the next town, Wellesley. I turned into a cemetery, up a hill and at 1.5 miles I stopped the car by a marker that said HOPE. My mom (Hope) died when I was 15 months old and this is her final resting place. #fate. This morning I ran my 3 mile loop, taking a picture as I said hi to my mom. Tonight I did another 3 miles. (Mon 5) / Total Miles 646.39 since 7/4/18

What a nice story. You are such an inspiration Roger. I am liking two a day myself. Did that with Michael and last few days. Go Team! You are catching me but Michael is way out there this Challenge. 11/5 5:50 pm
For the last two challenges, I have run a marathon the day before the challenge started. Add in a couple of injuries and it's really screwing up my mileage. It's really great that you were able to spend some time running with Michael but saw that you are now back on your own. Let's try and catch him! 😆 11/5 5:59 pm
We can do it but Michael is on a roll and pulling ahead. 11/5 6:37 pm

Recovery run from Marine Corp Marathon on Sunday. Great marathon but left calf was not impressed and complained very loudly. Around mile 6 I found an apple on the ground and tried rolling calf to no avail. Found discarded arm sleeve around mile 7 and slid it on which helped a little. Tough day but nothing compared to what Marines go through, so sucked it up and finished. (Tue 30) / Total Miles 615.14 since 7/4/18

Staying at Mohegan Sun Hotel/Casino with wife. Ran a very hot,humid and hilly 10.50 miles.
