Mar 9 HPT Tempo Run

Good morning everyone, I hope you are looking forward to running at least portion of the tempo run in daylight this evening.
The plan calls for 39 minutes worth of tempo tonight which will be the most minutes people targeting Cherry Blossom should do, and almost peak for those of you running Boston.
That's really it, see you all tonight.

Congratulations again to last night's award winners Bobby (Outstanding Male Runner) and Steve (Most Improved Male). Tonight we return to the Custis Trail for 8 hills.
