I was very happy to get in the Cherry Blossom 10 miler, which had a lottery for the first time this year. I've run an April ten miler every year since I started running in 2005 (GW parkway 10 miler in '05 and CB since), so it's been my annual fitness test. The results? 1:24:49, 1:19:25, 1:09:49, 1:08:49, and 1:06:43. Even getting below 70 minuts isn't going to be easy for me this year. The basic plan is to rebuild mileage and stay healthy.
