Hotel room in Worcester. Or however you spell it.

So, my last week actually went pretty well.  None of the runs were too memorable after my venture to Green Lakes, but my week ended well.  6 runs and 40 miles.  I finally have bested the elusive 40 mile barrier.  Sweet.  My running was also more impressive when you consider the 2nd half of my week was in Providence, so needless to say, my motivation to run relative to my motivation to drink was down.  Anyways, my goal for this week is to run 6-7 days and get 40 miles in again (if I run 6), or 45 (if I run 7 days).  I hope it's doable.  I ran 4 miles monday, easy on a hotel treadmill in Danbury Ct, in 26:50 and then this morning I ran 3 miles in 21:03.  I planned on getting in another 5 this evening, but work and driving and dinner decided that wasn't going to happen, so I will start my week a little behind.  I'm going for an 8 mile run with Ari tomorrow, though, and I have the whole weekend off, so those three days should get me some good mileage.

On another note, being on the road all the time can get kinda boring.  I like Brian and all, but I am running out of stuff to make me not want to drive our truck off a bridge.  Other then the fear of hurting myself.  If anyone travels a lot and has any suggestions, let me know.  Anyways, at least I'll be in the Boston area for the next week or so.  I've always liked Boston.  When I was a kid my mom had to go see a specialist in Boston, and my parents told my brother and I that we were going on a vacation.  So Boston to me was what Florida was to everyone else, a sweet get away spot with cool stuff.  Just replace beaches and sun and sand, with an aquarium.   Emperor penguins rock.

Also, this may be both random, and surprising, or randomly surprising, but I've never done a fantasy baseball league before, but my friend Brian talked me into it, and it's really sweet.  I don't actually have a baseball team that I openly root for, being from Syracuse and all, but I think I like the mets because my team has Johan Santana, and Carlos Beltran.  Thats a good enough reason for me.  Burke (who am I kidding, there is no way in hell Burke reads this) I also have a bunch of Detroit players, but I just can't see myself rooting for the Tigers, I just remember like 5 years ago when they lost 120 games or whatever, and thats crazy.  

Anyways, if anyone is around Boston, and wants to grab a beer (or run), or other adult beverage this weekend, let me know.  Should be a good time, Becky is going to be in town, as are other 08's Lena and (adopted 08) Mad.  Not to mention the mainstays of Ari and Hannah.
