December 31st!

A final run to cap off a tough year of running. The summer heat really knocked down the mileage. So for 2011 I've put in 687 miles and I loved every step. Here's to 2012!

It was tough getting out to run this afternoon. Sunny but cool, and when the sun went down it got real cold. I got 5 in only because I know this weekend will be full of food and drinks.

a little homemade 5k after work this afternoon. Temps were 42 with a wind chill of 35. The cold air felt great but I could have done without the wind.

White Rock Half Marathon

A very cold run yesterday running my 4th consecutive White Rock Half Marathon. It rained the entire time with temps around 44F. I woke up around 4am and left the house at 4:45 for my hour drive to Fair Park. As I left the tollway and got onto I-35, about 45 minutes of driving, I quickly realized I left my racing bib and chip timer on the counter. Called my dear wife and asked her to bring it. She quickly jumped in the car and started her 1 hour trek to Fair Park. I called Lindsey who was meeting me at the race and found out she was running behind and was still in Allen. Long story short, Kelley was able to give it to Lindsey saving her time and tolls. The race went well other than the rain. I really got tired around mile 9 where I ended up walking for a minute or so. The last few miles were tough. My joints were aching and my hands and feet were numb. Didn't have much of a kick but what I did throw in caused my calf to cramp up a little. So I took the line kind of easy. Enjoyed a couple beers with Lindsey and Andy and drove home to my wonderful family.
