I vaguely remember rolling over to check the weather on my Droid this morning around 6:00 a.m., contemplating running the Frost Bite 5K over in Acworth. But with a racetime forceast of 16 degrees with a 4 degree wind chill, along with snow and ice covered roads, I quickly got over it. “Frost bite,” indeed. I applaud the few dozen who ran it; I’m sure there were some PRs set – for the coldest race.
Conditions were fine later that afternoon indoors on the treadmill at the Y: 70 degrees and calm. And, of course, watching the televised Jackets victory over #5 Duke made it all the better. Lawal’s game alone pushed me to run 6 miles at my 5K pace. Maybe one day someone will host a January race indoors – with treadmills and Cardio Theatre. Sign me up for that one!
