Haley Town Finale

Today was probably the longest, most boring day I've had at the chiropractor's office. The new person commandeered my desk, and with her overpowering perfume/cigarette smell that had saturated the room, I could hardly breathe. Just kept telling myself that I am almost done!! One more half day Friday, and the fat lady will sing. CAN.NOT.WAIT.
I hit up Haley Town Rd right after work for one last 8-mile jaunt before I'm no longer employed in Maine. After two days of forced recovery on the slow stuff, I decided to pick up the pace finishing the 8 miles in 53:52, 6:41/mi. I felt good.
I received the news today that the Merrimack River Trail Race is postponed to May 9th. Although I was really looking forward to it next weekend, I think this will actually work out better since it gives me some time to get on snow-free trails to train. Plus, May 9th was free anyway, so it all works out, and now I have a few other back up races I can do next weekend instead.
Tomorrow will be a short run (maybe 6ish?) early before I head to our Tamworth ambulance base for a 10-hour shift from 9a-7p. I'm really looking forward to it since I am so ready to be back at a job I love.
