Good Luck Blowing the Competition Away

Good luck this weekend at the GBTC Invite. I'm excited to hear about everyone's races, although I must say I'm particularly excited about Katie Famous and Allison McCabe. Katie had an amazing workout last night and is all set for a big PR in the 3k. And Allison blew right by me and made me feel like an old woman on the track; she's bound to reset that club record of hers.

This morning was ridiculously cold. I put on all kinds of layers: tights, two base layer tops, my ugly magenta fleece, skull cap, ugly camo mittens, ski pants, tall Christmas socks. I looked pretty ridiculous, especially by the end of my run when I had a frost stripe down my back and bum. Yikes. I usually see at least a few runners around Spot Pond, but there wasn't a single sole out there today. Just to make the run a bit longer, I ran by my favorite fruit and veggie store, Robertos. Corn is 10 for a buck today, so that's what will be on my plate tonight. Yum.

Props to that, Em...Famous looks smokin' these days! Running today was like trying to take the perfect picture with no camera and no film...f'ing impossible! I was frozen to the core...I'm hoping tomorrow is a little warmer...I started dribbling as I was talking to Sloan on the chin was numb! Oh, Emily, you looked great last night as pacing!
