3/13/2009 Shouldn't have Bragged!

Well, sometimes when we boast about things.........the opposite happens! I've been bragging about the great temperatures we've been having here lately and it's bitten me in the ass the last couple of days. It's only been in the 30-40 degree range with rain and snow mix yesterday and today. Not very good for a long run, that's for sure! Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 50's and clear so hopefully, if the wind doesn't pick up, I can get in a nice 10-15 miles before I head back to work tomorrow night. I'm off tonight and then on for 5 nights.
After that, it'll be time to head to Decatur for The Grasslands. I'm excited about this race, hoping to bring my PR down even more. If I could hit 9:30 or less I would be in hog heaven! Plus I am getting to stay at Bluebonnet, where they have the Bare As You Dare XC 5k! It's a beautiful, wooded, and serene resort with showers, two swimming pools, a sauna, and a huge hot tub. Oh, and it's au naturel! Total relaxation and comfort! Hell, yeah!

Good luck at Grasslands, this brings you up to how many 50-milers for the year? Haha nice, a nekkid XC 5k and the accommodations will be better than what you experienced at Cross Timbers.

see you there....at the race that is:-)...wrapped up today with a longish run of 10 miles....body is now beginning to fell rejuvinated. According to our buddy Rick G., we all should feel like a high performance sports car a few days before the race...
