Now we begin the New England Series with Mainly Marathons. The first race, Day 1 is in Sanford, Maine. A rather flat course and rather pleasant. Again kind of cold. Spring has not quite reached Maine yet. But I did find some pretty flowers along the route where we passed a few homes. But there were no leaves on the trees yet. No rain though. I enjoyed quite a bit of traveling through Maine before today. I even got to visit a few friends who live up this way.
I was recovered from the last series so was back to just a little over 7 hours. Even if I were to run as fast as possible, I would still end up being rather slow simply because it is so easy to linger at the food table with each loop or to walk a lap or two while talking to one of the other runners.
