Today was an open calendar with an opportunity to run I took advantage of. Ding dong would have taken a few more mile advantage had she not forgotten her gloves. The wind off the water was cold and now I think I know why people run clock stupid, the coldest wind is off the water and at their backs running the direction they run. I had gloves in my bag, I just failed to put them on. Lesson learned, took a good hour for my hands to really warm up.
It was a lovely and sunny 4.4 Mile 45 Minute run, when my hands weren't taking the brunt of the wind chill. The air temp was 40F, I did not factor in that wicked wind chill off the Long Island Sound.
A friend sent me his race list for the year and this got me going on picking races for 2013. Of course one thing leads to another and I start looking for 1/2 marathon per month. Can we say over committer?? I'm good for all months but December. Perhaps TX or FL? I think the list is good and now I need to pick which ones and leave room for the 'oh that sounds like a cool race'. OH yeah and family....
How do you determine which races to run? Any thoughts on my list? Run any of these races? Suggestions for a December 1/2?
