2 months 'til Shamrock

January 2013 snowThe path to my 6th Shamrock Half Marathon started in a heavy snow tonight. The run wasn't anything special -- just 2 miles as a recovery from Sunday's Disney Marathon -- but it's very strange to go from running in uncomfortable heat to low 30s and snow within a 5-day span. It's also been an extremely bizarre week with my soreness. The way I felt Monday morning was like nothing I had experienced. I could barely walk. Today I feel surprisingly refreshed. If it wasn't snowing and if the roads weren't a disaster with slush, I would have run farther.

The Shamrock countdown and training is now under way for me, both physically and mentally. Sunday got me excited about running again and I can't wait to see how the next 2 months go. ...
