Yesterday I was half-joking when I said “tomorrow I’ll be bitching because it’s too cold.” Well this morning it was 39 degrees with a 20 mph wind. When I heard the wind, I didn’t bitch about it; I just rolled over and went back to bed.

While I didn’t run in the morning, it doesn’t mean I took the day off. Tonight I managed 58 minutes on the treadmill with 25 minutes at a tempo pace. I’ve given up on trusting the mileage my treadmill reports. I know it’s not calibrated correctly, so I just base things on effort. I called this an 8 mile run.

In today’s mail I got a letter from Bolder Options – the group that organized the 10K race I ran on 9/24. I won a $10 gift card to REI for winning my age-group. Cool. That beats a trophy. The letter also reminded me to look online for photos. Here’s one of me and Jim. I promise I figure out how to fit these into the body of my post – someday.

Hello again
Just go into compose mode and drag the image to wherever you want it to be. Not that I claim to be an expert. Did you see Chelle's description of you on the left hand side of her blog? That's where I got it from ;)

Oh, I didn't know you could drag images. I'll figure this out sooner or later. I may even get a photo to go with my profile.

Ha, no I missed Chelle's description. Thanks for pointing that out.

I just saw your post on my blog - I must have been off to your town before I read it. Sorry for not responding. Now I am back in Boston and will return to Maine tomorrow. Turns out I didn't have much free time - in fact I had to run on the treadmill at the hotel at night. I didn't feel comfortable running on the quiet streets of Bloomington by myself... Oh, its cold in MN!

Andrew, that's alright. I think I wrote it Tuesday and you left Wednesday. If you come back to town, let me know. Bloomington is only about 10 minutes from my house. Oh yeah, it cooled off right when you got here.
