Today was a sprint stage in the Tour de France. The riders actually sprinted 123 miles. Think about that. The main group finished in 4 hours, 37 minutes and 9 seconds for an average speed of 26.63 mph! That is a crazy fast pace to hold for just a few miles…much less 123. These guys are good. If you haven’t followed the race up until how, be sure and try to find it tomorrow and Sunday. There’s only two stages left and there’s only 8 seconds separating first and second…should make for an exciting finish!

This was just a short run to get the legs moving and see how the blisters were healing up. I was in Boston for work, so it was an unfamiliar route. I left from my hotel and went about 20 minutes down the road, then turned around and headed back. It was all downhill on the way out and uphill on the way back. Other than a little discomfort in the knees, everything felt good.
