A runner once, an explorer always!

I am finding now that as much as I got tired of the heat, I am finding all of this cold weather much more distasteful. It takes extra time to get all bundled up. You are never sure when you have the right amount of clothes. I took a break in all those really cold days, which put my running off for most of three weeks. I wasn’t sure then whether that would be the right thing to do or not, as far as getting me to my goals. I did know that I just couldn’t be out running in that weather. If I push this to the point I am making myself miserable, I will end up justifying the need to abandon this pursuit for something else. I am now thinking that maybe that time off was beneficial as I seem to be finding a new gear here lately. I am feeling much more optimistict. I may not make the top ten in my age group at the Capitol 10,000, but I am much better equipped to get near that now than I was even a month ago. I don’t know if my weight has anything to do with it. I haven’t weighed myself since before Christmas when my scale broke. There is a little over three weeks until race day. This will be the big push and I’ll try to be better at putting my thoughts down here.     02/20  31:29.35     02/21  34:09.32     02/22  17:57.78     02/23  54:46.32     02/25  17:14.58     02/26  52:41.00     02/28  31:23.51    03/01  17:49.42
