The run itself was uneventful. There was some slick spots, some snowy spots and a little bit of yelling at cars, nothing new. It didn't even feel that cold, to me anyways. Only my thumbs. Few minutes into it, I could already tell that my beard was freezing up. Halfway through, cars were driving by and people were pointing at us. It wasn't til the end that one of my running partners said I look like Santa.
Coors Light anyone??
Eight miles done, and we could have done fifteen. We were feeling great!
I'm so glad there are other nut jobs like me out there!!
My two new best friends Jim & Pamela!
The miles start to go up from here. The shortest long run on schedule is a 10 miler three weeks away. Other than that, it's 13 next weekend and 14 after that. Luckily for me I have plenty of people to share these miles with and hopefully only few more weeks of cold weather.
I'm still debating throwing in a half marathon into the training. A bunch of people I know are doing the Hyannis Half on Feb. 23rd. which will work out for me scheduled wise. But not sure if I want to spend the money yet. I have a feeling I might fall to peer pressure on this one. We'll see.
How's everyone handling the cold temps here in the states?? Are you still running outdoors?
