    good Schnotfest 4 mi 00:46 11:25 pace

    Pretty good run, although I'm sick again (grrr) so I struggled at times because of coughing. In the upper 20s and dry air so my lungs were feeling banged up with each inhale. I just slowed i... read more

      noooo! No schnotfest allowed! Good job getting your run in. Dry air and snot aren't a fun combo, but you soldiered on. Props to ya.

    Slow and steady and we got it done. Melissa's training for a late May half and asked if I'd like to join her. She tends to be faster than I am, but was happy to trade quicker pace for c... read more

      Sometimes, cutting back is good for us. So I think it's a great sign that you felt like you could have kept on keeping on. Yay for you!!!

    Kept it loose and easy today. Love that 3 miles felt really short. It makes me eager to start adding on the miles.

    great Get To The Point (And Back) 4.28 mi 00:44 10:10 pace

    Sunny day, temps just above 40 degrees, no wind, and I wore capri leggings under my skirt so naked calves!!!!

  5. RUN
    good Guster 3.5 mi 00:38 10:59 pace

    Late afternoon run, as I waited for the wind to dip below 20 mph. First half of the run felt good. Second half of the run was me v. head wind and so it was more of a battle. But I'm pleased... read more

    good A Dusting Snow 3.31 mi 00:37 11:12 pace

    A week off because of being sick. A run with Misha was the perfect way to ease back into things. The roads were a little tricky, as a light snow was falling and it was hard to tell where there wa... read more

    good Beat the Snow 5.71 mi 01:02 10:48 pace

    More snow coming through, but Melissa and I were on a mission to get done before it started. She has a 10K race next weekend, so she wanted to do 6 miles. It flew by because we were so chatty. I... read more

  8. RUN
    good Layer Up 4 mi 00:46 11:27 pace

    Dag. It got cold again. It was back to freezing face warmers and IBC today. But I churned out 4 miles and appreciated the new bits of landscape that are appearing after the recent days of melt.

  9. RUN
    good In the Fog 4 mi 00:45 11:11 pace

    Dense fog this morning - which is a good thing, as it means it didn't drop below freezing last night! I wore my bright pink jacket and my blinky vest but it still seemed drivers had a hard ti... read more

    great Two for Two 4 mi 00:43 10:42 pace

      I love Yeti hair. I, however, did not have it for my run on Saturday. Not to brag or anything, but I was actually SWEATING. It got up to 22 whole degrees by the time I started!

      IBC!!!! I understand, though I've been mostly spared that condition this year due to our bizarrely warm winter. I am glad you broke up the cabin fever with this run.
