too frozen for half

for the past 3 or 4 years, i have been signing up for the 1/2 marathon tied to the st. paul winter carnival. not once have i ever graced the starting line with my presence. either i feel too out of shape or its just too cold to bother.

this year i said no matter what i'm showing up!

it's so cold this year that they decided to shorten it up by about half, to a 6.5 mile race. i'm kind of bummed, even though it is ridiculously cold out. i have been looking forward to a good 2 hour race outdoors. oh well.

temp for race: -10F, feels like -25F.


oh welll. at least this way i'll have no problems recovering and running again either later today and/or tomorrow. i want to get in at least 30 miles this week, thats my goal.
