        Hello all,


        No run today as it was a SRD.  Much to my dismay I saw flurries flying in the air, no accumulation, however winter will not surrender.  I hope everyone had a small piece of pie today to celebrate Pi day (3.14).

            I ran 4 @ 8:26 w/ 2 strides. Just 2 more days until my first race in almost 3 years.

              4.6 recovery pace for me.

                Wow, go nail that bad boy!  Good luck to you and all the other racers this weekend, I will be joining the fray soon enough!


                I am usually knocked the hell out by now but I am just getting in after being on the road all day.  I wish there was a such thing as an unwinding coffee, because I sure as hell would drink it!

                  April - nice job "running" the errand


                  D^2 - almost race day!


                  Robert - excellent.  May your training for the HM go well.


                  Luke - throwing a snowball at you, shirtless guy.


                  Matt - hope you get better


                  Rondog - If it will not surrender, we will await its total annihilation.


                  10.4 miles with 20 minutes near HM pace, 6:55 overall.  Just before going out, I spotted some visitors in the back yard and DW took a picture.  The close one is missing the bottom of its right front leg but seemed to get around ok.



                    LRB - Thanks. Why don't you clean off a bottle (or box lol) of wine to unwind.


                    Shirfan - Nice run and what a treat to have those visitors in your backyard. Would your wife let you build a running track around the perimeter of the property?

                      Haha, she actually suggested it so that I don't get killed by a plow. I think the time spent clearing it of snow would be prohibitive, though.

                        Mattchiro, good luck this weekend!


                        I got back to the hotel early enough, but my feet are hurting today so 4th day without running.  I'm quite enjoying it, actually.


                        Hope everybody had a great evening.
