Race #26 took us to the capital of Connecticut – Hartford. This was the 5th Capitol we visited on our journey. Charlie Olbrias from The Last Mile Racing Management Company had run the Hartford Marathon five times. He knew a good, flat spot around mile marker #12 for us to put on The Capitol Mile #5 race. We had an opportunity to show a different look at running the mile. Check out this short video of my last quarter mile. You can hear me breathing from far away. If you run the mile hard, it hurts. This race was no exception.
All that is left is the .2 of The SmoothToe New England Marathon…One Mile At A Time taking place down Boylston Street in downtown Boston Sunday morning. Let’s hope for very little traffic!
