Frozen Beard On The Final Stretch Of Training For The Groundhog Day Marathon



So as not to disappoint my fellow running mates, I got out there and got my Monday training run done complete with a frozen beard. Things were pretty good so long as I didn't have to run into the wind. I picked my route so I could minimize running into the wind. I was pleasantly surprised by my overall average pace after finishing. I think Wednesday might be the most interesting final training run, we'll see. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus

Picking Up The Pace With The Snow Cleared



With things warming up yesterday the roads and sidewalks got cleared pretty well. I was able to hit my interval training run paces quite easily. Looking back on the tough training week, I think it was actually a good thing in terms of getting an extra hard without to prepare me for today. I only have a couple of runs left in the training plan before the marathon next week, then it'll be on to the #RBR 25K training. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun

It Snowed, I Ran, It Rained, I Finished



It was slow going this morning. Like someone else has said it was like running in sand, my cleats we're a marginal help. Glad to still have some worship and prayer time. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus

It's The Abominable Snowman!



Let's just say it was a little cold outside. I still don't understand why people, and businesses, and churches couldn't have their sidewalks clear by now. For those that got them cleared you are a blessing to us runners. I made the mistake of using my CamelBak again. The line froze again at about mile 3-4. I need to figure out something better, maybe the best I can do is water bottles when it's this cold and just conserve. I can say that until now it's been pretty great weather for runners in the winter. I take days like this as just another way to prepare for anything come the Groundhog Day Marathon. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus

Prequel To The Groundhog Day Marathon?



It was a tough run this morning the snow covered sidewalks and pathways really took their tole the further I got into my run. On top of that my CamelBak nozzle froze up and couldn't get any water for a good portion of the second half of my run. What was supposed to be a 17 mile run ended up being only a 15 mile run. I had my mask on to help cover my face from the wind, which I'm so thankful I had decided to that otherwise my face probably would have been frozen.


There is no telling what the weather is going to be like come February 2nd, for the Groundhog Day Marathon. After today's experience I'm a little more concerned about marathon day. I'm hoping that we at least have clear trails on the marathon route. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus

Running To The Beat



Nothing too spectacular about my run this morning. Tried sticking to the interval paces as best I could. I did pretty good but I know I didn't slow down quite enough given that I should have gotten 9.2 miles in but it ended up being 9.65. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus

Being In Charge Of The Thanksgiving Turkey



As a former food service director, I was put in charge of baking the Thanksgiving turkey. It's coming along nicely. We'll see how people like it at lunch time.
