5 short days ago it was supposed to be 30 and sunny tomorrow morning. Now it is going to be NEGATIVE 15 degree windchill and 20 mph winds.
I hate to say it but I am surrendering to the weather and choosing not to drive two hours to race in the morning.
Honestly, I have tried to be positive all week but I realized leaving work today that it was 10 degrees warmer than it will be tomorrow and I could barely walk to my car without wanting to die. If you don't live in a northern state, I realize this might sound ridiculously dramatic, but it actually hurts to breath right now outside. Running is supposed to be something that is fun for me and tomorrow just couldn't possibly be fun.
So I moped upstairs tonight after calling my mom to tell her I wasn't running...because I am still 12 years old and need to run big decisions by her, and I saw my bib and shirt for tomorrow ...
I immediately called Jake and asked if he felt like standing next to a treadmill for two hours tomorrow morning with a motivational poster and camera.
He obviously said no!! you crazy loser! but he will be going to the gym with me :)
So Monday no race recap but I will tell you all the details of what it is like to run 13 miles on a treadmill...unless you have already done this before... Than you are a freaking beast and leave me some tips :)
Happy Weekend !!
