I had one of those runs that runningmommatoboys had just way slower.
It was a perfect day. 30F, no wind, sunny.
Started with a 1km warm up. Then did 5 miles with 600 foot of gain in 46:00 minutes.
Strong and that "I'm working it but it feels easy" feeling we all love when it happens.
Then a nice slow few miles to finish. It was wonderful.
Running for TJ
13 miles done at 8:24 pace, easy. One of those "and THIS is why I love to run" sort of runs.
I've found that the harder I work, the more luck I have.

Step, I got like 5 people I know heading up to Fargo. you will have to letme know what you think of Hudson's. I am starting Hansons next week, think Wednesday. Depending on results might try different one for TCM or Chicago.

Dangit, why is the treadmill owner not as excited to sell me his treadmill as I am to buy it from him?? No response, despite my having checked my e-mail every 5 minutes all day.

Ghettopops: Ohhh, I am very, very interested to hear what you think of Hansons once you get underway.
I ran a race on our last anniversary. It was an evening race, too. I felt a little bad, but I think that smart husbands know there are a lot of advantages to having a happy wife on your anniversary.
