8 inches

That title can be taken the wrong way...

Just got back from my 2nd outdoor run in 2 days. That never happens! I very rarely run 2 days in a row just b/c I get so easily burned out and prefer getting some cross-training done especially when the weather is just okay out. Anyways it was going to be an easy run and I wanted to get a long run in tomorrow before I left to go to central IL for a friends bridal shower. Then I looked at weather.com. HUGE SNOW STORM coming tonight! What the hell. I am so over snow. 8 inches of heavy wet snow and ice. So yeah that changed the running and going out of town plans a bit. Instead I was so annoyed with the upcoming weather system I went out and decided to do a quick 5k instead of some easy schmeezy run. I would have gone longer but Jacob was supposed to be back to take me to lunch (yeah that didn't happen so I totally could have gone longer). Anyways it was a great 5k and I am looking forward to improving it even more in the upcoming month.

lap 1: 8:31
lap 2: 8:13
lap 3: 8:12
lap 4 (0.11 miles) : 7:31

Look I ended up in the negative - wahoo! These afternoon lunch runs are good for me ;) I hope to run the Run to Wrigley in or under 25 minutes. I know this seems slow but is a vast improvement over my time last year at this race.

The title for this post and the last one are pretty representative of my Junk Mail folder. ;)

Great job on consecutive running days.

What! Snow?! Doesn't the atmosphere know that it's late March and we have races to train for? Hope it's just rain so that it doesn't mess up your travel plans too much. Great negative split though!!!

Hi Jamie

I am so friggin tired of snow.. I hate to whine but I need some heat soon or I am going to die. But enough about me.. awesome pace and look at you with the negative splits.

Did I mention I hate the cold?!?

Nice job on the negative splits! I'd love to get my time down to that, but I've got a long way to go!

I am a HUGE Cubs fan too. Nice to know a fellow runner shares my love for running and (more importantly) the Cubs. '08 is our year!!!!
