Yo run gang,
Im sure you can relate I put off the Monday morning run at 20 degrees opting for the day end run with a predicted high of 40. The morning was still, clear and the sun rise was beautiful. I ran that night in the dark, pouring rain and perhaps mid 30s. Each foot fall was a cold wet shock, you get the picture. The rule: Never let the weather affect your planned run, when race day dawns, you have no choice in the matter and you better be ready and know how to dress and run in all conditions. Not to mention, there are a ton of things that will come along to thwart the days run, weather should never be one of them. If the rain had been in the AM, I should still have headed out. Didnt I just say that?
No excuses, last years Super Bowl 5K was held in 5 degree weather with a stiff wind. In 06, race morning dawned with about a foot of new snow, memorable stuff, dont miss this year! Im coming for the finishers pint glass and post race hot wings and not just because theyre being served by the Hooters girls! 5K not long enough? Run a second loop with me, by then youll know the course! Enter at www.runsuperbowl.com.
A trick to get past the midwinter slump almost like magic is a trip to Running Fit for new shoes. At this time of year, the stores are slow and you can take your time trying on everything with our lonely staff members who are excited to talk about your running. Best yet, the 08 spring shoes just came in, new models like the Kayano 14, Nike Structure Triax 10 and Brooks Adrenaline GTS 8. Shameless plug? Well maybe, but Ill soften it up, bring this email in for $10 off any new shoes and fire up the magic!
Get out and run!
