It was pitch dark in Burlington, MA as I set out for my run at 4am down the unknown streets as I chose I route I had no clue where it led to.  I ran on the main street which provided some lighting and did 5 mid run short sprints to keep the legs feeling fresh and fast.  We were headed to Boston at 7am to see Kara Goucher so I had to get the run in before that.

4.02 miles
7:33 pace
It was rainy and cold and I chose another random route near the hotel.  This one happened to be quite hilly.  Probably not the best choice before the Boston Marathon, but I ran it at a fairly slow speed.  I showered up after and again we hit the commuter rail for Boston.  1 more day baby!
