I've been off the blog for a few months.  The summer was not kind to me in terms of injuries and I was unable to get in any consistent training so didn't keep up with the blog on the days I did run or race.

I am trying to reestablish my mileage base before ramping up training for Boston as training will be starting up soon.

6 miles in 48 minutes.
