Time for winter running clothes!

The cold is here a bit early this year! I ran this mornnig and the temperature was hovering around 32. I broke out my long pants and long-sleeve running shirts and put on my earwarmers and was off. Other than the cold, it was a great run. I did not want to get out of the shower because the hot water felt so nice. I'm still freezing here at work. Maybe I need to bring some gloves to the office...

This weekend is the Vulcan Run. This was my first 10k last year. Hopefully I'll be able to get a better time this year!

Once again, I'm bad at updating. I'm five weeks into training for the Mercedes marathon. I can't believe it's going by so fast.

I met one of my regular running partners this morning to run 5 miles before work. It just recently got cold (well, cold for Alabama) and there was a lake wind advisory. That along with the darkness and clouds overhead and the Halloween decorations made for a spooky run. I'm glad there was someone else running with me!

Up this weekend is the Vulcan Run. This was my first ever 10k last year. This year, I think I'm running 6 miles before the race, and then doing the run. I would have never believed that had you told me that at the start line last year!

Wow, a month since the last post! This week was the official start of marathon training. However, I've been under the weather with a sinus infection. Fun stuff! I'm finally feeling somewhat back to normal.

Tomorrow morning I'm running a 10k, extending it to 7 miles, instead of doing 9 like the schedule calls for. I've got to ease back into it. Since going on a cruise last week and being sick, I haven't been able to run like I should. But I should be back into it soon and back here with some updates. I'll try to remember to take my camera tomorrow so I can post pictures.

And just as an aside, the fall weather is finally getting here! It should be around 65 degrees tomorrow morning when the race starts. Almost time to unpack the cold weather running gear!!
