Hi TD. Yes my entourage will be the top geezer known as Dannir. Not being joined by any of my family. Probably the wise choice. There was a lot of faffage with the family in Paris last year. I want to my 3 days pre-Bosti to be chill. We've got baseball tickets and the Boston 5k to look forward to. I won't have to worry about D being bored at the expo - or spectating at the marathon. He'll be WELL INTO IT (seeing as his brilliance in Tokyo last week has taken him within spitting distance of the qualifying time )
We are going out at chill speed on the 5k (which means I huff and puff while he coasts around), and fully intend to have a fun, relaxing time to get Jimbob in the very best head shape for an awesome race.
Just got in from Tokyo - awesome race, awesome volunteers. Came in at 3:47 - was very happy with that.
I think all the long course length readings were due to it having many twits and turns, as well as the usual long reading one gets. I've never had one as high as this one though (26.8). I don't think it had anything to do with the buildings.
