As expected it was cold this morning, 30 something degrees. But also, as usual, I was there to put my work in. I got it done. It was impossible for me to get warmed up so I didn't force it. I averaged about 8 minute miles. I could have done a minor workout this morning but I'm glad I skipped it and jogged easy. I have more to lose than to gain by doing anything fast these days. I'm starting to piece my race plan together and gather the materials needed for Sunday. I'm also excited for my friends who will also be participating in the half and full marathons. I'm probably more excited about how they are going to do than I am for myself. It will be interesting to see who makes that clear break-through and puts it on another level than we are used to seeing them at. It also will be good to see and talk to all of these guys again.
