les.  Evening mileage. Did a warm up and cool down with Leah so she wouldn’t have to run alone in the dark, and ran on the indoor track in between while she raced. Had to dodge a lot of people and hop over a steeple barrier a bunch of times.
Saturday, Feb 14, 2009
AM: 2 hr 3 min, 17.0 mi
les.  Boston to Newton and back. I was on a mission to run part of the Boston marathon course. Very enjoyable run.
Sunday, Feb 15, 2009
AM: 1 hr 20 min, 10.8 mi
les.  80 minutes in the AM with Leah. We got back late last night from Boston, so I was lacking sleep and had a terrible headache. Will probably do more in the PM.
PM: 1 hr 24 min 49 sec, 12.0 mi
les.  Legs felt good but I was pretty hungry for most of the run, so it wasn’t the most pleasant experience.
Total: 132.3 miles

Yes, it’s in miles, not kilometers.  If it were in kilometers, the total would be 212.8 km.
