No Boston Marathon for me… tempo run Monday…


11 miles down, 9 @ tempo pace (7.30 miles), 2 warm up/ cool down… I almost called off my run today. I was so exhausted following work, I came home and had a power nap… When I woke up, the last thing I wanted to do was run, but I dragged my ass out the door and did it. The run gave me an exuberant amount of energy… I like it when they have that affect.

I wasn’t able to watch the Boston Marathon online… Seems UniversalSports.com now charges to view “Premium” sporting events. I dont believe it was charging to view a “Premium” sporting event, I believe it was charging due to obvious interest in a rapidly growing sport. The fact that the marathon sold out in 8 hours, there was great interest behind it, so they decided to charge and cash in. Couldn’t watch it on WBZ due to being in Canada… I will watch the replay of it on Universalsports when I get around to it. I am amazed no where on the internet had a live stream of the marathon… It is shocking that NBC can lock something up as they did.

Montreal is down 2-0 tonight… Atleast they were the last time I checked… Prior to getting on here

Cheers

    Good job on getting out and running even when you dont want to!
    Sucks that Montreal lost last night… hopefully they can turn it around next game.
