Training for 3/4/16

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 5:14 pm

It snowed last night as expected, and was still snowing when we got up this morning. Pepper and I had about the same reaction:

While it was cold and windy all day, it did technically get above freezing, and I guess the ground was warm, so it didn’t stick around very long. There’s still a dusting on the grass now, but everything else is clear.

Which meant Pepper and I could go for the short easy run on the schedule. I got us both suited up and we did a quick lap around the 4.5-mile loop. My favorite part was about a mile from the end, when Pepper noticed a “gumball” from a sweetgum tree — at least the 500th we’d seen today alone — and was so terrified he dropped the enormous stick he was carrying and jumped straight in the air haha. Weirdo.

Anyway, this should be the last of the snow we see this winter, knock on wood. This weekend will still be chilly, but it’s supposed to get into the 60s and 70s next week!

Exactly two weeks from today is the beginning of Shamrock race weekend. The bib numbers are posted online! I’m 17564 in the 8K, starting in the second corral, and 3520 in the marathon, starting in the first corral.

Other than running a 12-miler and a 5-miler this weekend, I’m going to a family dinner tomorrow night at my parents’ house, and I’m sure I’ll be watching the NASCAR race from Las Vegas on Sunday.
