Hey everyone, Brian here... guest blogging.
As Emily said, we headed to the Corporate Challenge in Boston tonight. Last year, it was my last race before breaking my leg two days later. So, I was pretty happy to be back at racing one year later. Although I couldn't come close to matching my time from last year, I wanted to push myself a bit to see what I could do. Emily and I got split up at the start, so I went out on my own. Not knowing what to expect from my leg/ankle, I just went out by feel starting rolling along. As I went, I got more confident in how I was feeling, so picked it up a bit and ended up finishing in 24:05 which is just under 7 minute pace. I'm pretty happy with that.
After the race, Emily and I hung around for a bit, and decided to stop for food on the way home. We stopped at "4 Burgers" in Central Square - Cambridge, which has really great homemade veggie burgers with lots of fixings, including a great Mango BBQ Sauce. The sweet potato fries are great too. It was tasty.
We then enjoyed the nice night and walked to Harvard Square to get the T back to my place. All in all, a good night. Adios, internet people.
