December 9 HPT Tempo Run

Good dreary morning, Everyone. 

 
Congrats to Christie and Rodrigo on big PR's at CIM
 
The schedule targeting Boston is posted on the site, and below is a copy of it. The hill workouts are a little off this cycle because of how the first Mondays fall in compared to race day. 
 
With the hills in Boston our monthly hill workouts are more important than they are for the fall cycle.
