Spring runoff today, did it last year and really enjoyed it. Got up pretty early so I could get to Pueblo before the race in plenty of time to do my normal pre-race routine. Everything the last few days and this morning was pretty normal so that was good. roughly 2 mile warmup, was already in the mid-50s and warming up quickly, nice weather for March. My watch didn't get my splits, but I know my first couple were 6:18, 6:07, 6:12, 5:53, then I was at right around 31:00 for the 5 mile, into the wind and uphillish for miles 5, 6, and 7 so it slowed me down quite a bit, I was 6:23 into the wind and 6:12 with the wind for 8, 9 and not sure on 10 because there is a big hill coming up the bluff and straight into 20mph winds, so the last .3 actually probably added 20 seconds off where I was. Overall, it was a good effort, only 45 seconds slower than last year with an injury this year I'm training through and a lesser training cycle at this point, so all things considered, a good day. My goal going in was 1:02:30, or 6:15, and I ended up just 9 seconds slower. Boston will be tough with this injury but as long as I get warmed up and loose, it tends to not be as sore during the race effort itself, so just gotta train to finish. 3 mile cooldown for 15.2 overall, upper 60s by the end, which was a little warm but nice
