I didn't feel like dealing with the heat, and I was near the gym after a meeting so I went there to run. I'm a wimp, I know ... but at least I ran, right?

    A run is a run. TM runs are harder anyway. Extra points :-)

    It was 89 around 1pm. The humidity takes it into the 90's. It's miserable. I'm not sure when I'm gonna take the Cookie to run :(

    @Kelly, I run on the track. I'd fly off the back of a treadmill!

    89! Yikes. I used to love the warmth.. but now I don't like running in anything over 70. I prefer 55-60 though.

    @Prof, I love to run when it's 40's. Maybe even 30's. The older I get, the less I can tolerate the heat and humidity in the south.

    @Prof, we had our coldest weather when I ran my half - I think it was 21? I wore long sleeves and short sleeves, a scarf, a headband with my ballcap, and gloves. I wore a trash bag while waiting for the race to start, and ditched that at starting time. Starting in mile 2, I was warm and lost the headband, gloves, and scarf.

    @Sang, lol. I run on the track - I can't run on the TM 'cause I would fly off the back of it!
    @Prof, it hadn't been that cold and the week of the race, the projected temps were getting colder and colder. I hadn't trained in weather that cold, so I wasn't sure how it would go.

    The cold obviously agrees with you - didn't you say you managed 2:06 for your (first) half?

    If I didn't have a goal of 2:15 already for my first, I'd set it at 2:06.06 :)

    You have plenty of time to change your goal! ;-) I didn't give myself a time goal for my first ... my only goal was to finish and to run the whole 13.1. Finishing with a 2:06 was just icing on the cake!

    @Wanda - I don't want to change it. I want to keep it at 2:15... that way I can still feel ok if something happens and I don't beat it :)

    @Sang, for tackling something that big for the first time, a time goal was too overwhelming. The goal of running the whole thing was enough for me to shoot for. Now I'll shoot for beating my time :)
