Race Schedule and Results

Oh the off season...

You ready for this???

I ran outside today.

Yeah, I put on my big girl panties (and as many layers as I could) and ran 4.7 miles outside. It was 38 degrees.

Have I mentioned that I hate running outside in the cold? The burning of my lungs, the freezing of my toes, the sweat the accumulates under the layers that are supposed to keep me warm. All of it. Not fun.

Anyway, went 4.7 mile in 41:14 minutes. Eh... a good 8:47 pace. Thought I was going to die.

But I didn't...

Do I need to start dragging you out on runs with me? It's not that bad, I promise!

Liz said...

You're MUCH more brave than I!

Last year I loved running out in the cold. I even had quite a few below zero runs at 10 and 12 miles. Loved it! But I just don't have it in me this winter. Good job on getting out there.

That explains that pink blur I kept seeing whipping around turns and up and down hills towards home. Heat is a great incentive! Let's do it again soon!
