Thanks, Micah. I hope your Holiday Season was eventful. 'Bout the only thing I got was a bunch of Taco Bell gift certificates, and an invite by Dan to come down and kill myself in a half marathon Jan 14. I ended up taking him up on that but opted for the 10K instead, running with one of his up and coming Freshman to try to pull her to a sub 8 min mile pace. We did succeed. Cool

One would think so, but I believe Paul is actually embarrassed to admit it in this case. Something about having run much faster without medalling previously.

Micah,
I ran the 10K race in just under 49 minutes. I was 2nd in my age division, but the winner for the 55-59 group was the top overall Master's, so they threw his name out, and I ended up with the 1st place medal. Embarassed Rolling Eyes
It was in the low 20's at the start of the race. I've never raced in that cold of temperature before. Dan had 4 XXXXL parkas on. Mr. Green On the other hand, Dan was out in the cold, standing around for over 2 hours, until all his runners finished.
I was hoping to use this early season race to get my training back on track, but the snow hit hard on Tuesday, so except for one treadmill session, I didn't get back out until Friday, again.
Time to start our 2007 diaries.
How are your lower legs and calves holding up ??

Just read your post in Rambling Runners.

As an aside to my story, above, I forgot to bring any kind of stopwatch or sportswatch with me. Sad So much for that memory of mine.

I was dressed so warm, I couldn't go inside for more than a few minutes without sweating. I also had an extremely difficult time reaching over to grab the seat belt.

One of my runners grabbed a cup of water at one of the aid stations and was greeted by a block of ice when he went to take a sip...

I talked with someone yesterday who went down to Phoenix last week for the marathon/half, and would you believe it, it was down in the 20's at the start of that race, too. It got up to 55* by the end, but still.
