First, if you missed my post friday, I am doing a Q&A session letting you all ask whatever you would like to know about me.... so feel free to leave any question(s) you have for me, and I plan to take those questions and answer them by the end of this week! Should be fun!
I had a wonderful weekend of R&R. To sum it up... happy hour Friday, Sioux hockey sweep, wedding dress shopping with a friend, two days of temps above freezing, sun shining, dinner with friends, movie night, a long run, and the Oscars.... It was great!
Jamoosh informed me, as well as many others I suppose, of this Virtual Run put together by RAZZ over at Running Off At The Mind. It just so happens that I had 6.5 miles on the training schedule for yesterday so I figured why not?! What's another .16 miles? Oh yeah, baby!
Here's the "race" recap....
Who: Me, of course ... and many other's I pressume.
What: Global Warming, My Ass! 6.66 mile Virtual Run
When: Sunday, March 7th, 2010 @ 2:00PM
Where: The freakin' treadmill at the beautiful YMCA. I haven't had my running shoes touch the pavement since prior to the first snow fall and I can't even remember how long ago that was... probably sometime in September. Pathetic, I know. It just confirms how sick I am of snow, ice, snow, rain, ice, and did I mention snow and ice?! geez.
Why: Because this weather is getting stinkin' old, and I have the right to say that living in Fargo, ND. We are jumping from "It's been freezin' cold here for 3+ months" to "Let's start filling sand bags and building clay dikes quickly before the snow and ice melt too fast and the river rises above flood stage" ... yeah if it's not one concern with the weather, it's another.
How (did it go): I have become so used to spending most of my running on the treadmill that I can't really complain. However, it was so packed in the gym for a late Sunday afternoon. It didn't help with the stuffy air and stinky bodies ....that is something that one does NOT become used to... ever.
Anyway, I was so pumped with the idea of getting this run done. But, by the time I finally made it to 4 miles, I was ready to jump off... no lie. I really struggled mentally to get through the last 2.66 miles, but I did! And I felt very accomplished, especially after the low key weekend!
I know that many of you participated in this and I look forward to reading your report as well! And, many of you did some other races out there too... looking forward to reading those reports! I always find them motivating!
Have a great week, y'all!
