To the Threshold

It was somewhat cold today. When work was over, it was 22F out and dropping slowly. I still do not have my new tights as they just came in and I need to pick them up so what to do? I decided to run outside in shorts. WHAT?!? Usually I will run in shorts outside until 25 degrees but not under, that is, unless extenuating circumstances exist. Today was one of those.

It wasn't windy out so I figured it really wouldn't be a big issue and in the end, it really wasn't. The last 1/4 mile was the coldest as I had to run back down the road to work right into the little wind there was. After inside again, my legs and face were quite pink. My girls would have loved it!

On the 23rd & 24th, I was able to get my 13 and 10 miles in at the Pettit Center and with the 5 miles I ran today, I am now only 9 miles shy of 1600 miles for the year. I am trying to run easy now as there are less than 2 weeks until the Mississippi/Alabama double. I will try to get a little running in tomorrow and Wednesday and maybe a few on Thursdays as well.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you all a great New Year.

WHAT is right! I bet you were more than a little pink. I'm glad your running is going well and that you had a great year. Happy Holidays and I wish you all the best in 2011!
