Another solid week in the books with decent volume and vertical, ending with the informal Brighton Marathon this past Sunday. While I had run the course before this was my first time doing the actual event which is a yearly occasion thanks to the MRC crew and a number of other volunteers who flag the course and provide water en route (see gps map below). I carpooled up to Brighton with Peter Adler and Pete Stoughton, arriving about 5 minutes before we all casually sauntered out of the parking lot and up the trail. I ended up running the whole thing at the front with Greg Norrander which was a blast and also a nice boost to the confidence in being able to keep up with this guy. Apart from Greg blazing up the first section of climbing from Mill D we kept the pace pretty controlled and conversational. I think we were at 4:38 total time. Post race/run festivities were at Jay Aldous' house at Brighton. Thanks all for a great morning!
