3 things: Luck, PRs, Hail

4-leave clover, Bedford, Va. 1. I have found 3 4-leaf clovers this spring. Don't call me lucky though - I find them all the time. And no, I'm not actively searching them out. It's an odd thing with me that started years ago. I just spot them very easily for some reason.

2. It's kind of ridiculous that my 10k PR isn't under 48 minutes, but I've never had an opportunity to race a 10k in prime shape. My 10k experiences have been at odd times of my training that haven't translated into times that I think I can do. I don't know Sunday's course all that well, but I feel like there's no reason I can't go to Richmond at the Carytown 10k and knock a minute off my PR.

3. Crazy weather has really cramped my style this week, including hail.

May hail storm, Bedford
