Still having fun with this one. They are not classifying this storm as a Nor-Easter. And I don’t think it has a name either.
They cancelled the race this afternoon.
I ate a lot of extra crap today because I thought I was going to run it off on Sunday. I did run 5K at lunch but I just had a huge sandwich. Oh well.
The Half at The Hamptons race director is giving us a 10% chance that the race will go on. Yesterday I heard reports that they were expecting less snow, but that was in the Boston area. In New Hampshire they are still expecting 6-12″ of snow and most of that will fall during the race. Their goal is to post a final decision by mid day Friday but may hold off untill 5AM on Sunday. I’m going to stick with my pre-race plans and get in a few miles on the treadmill today and enjoy some guilt-free carbs.
You know it is cold when you just can’t bring your self to ice a sore muscle.
You know it is cold outside when the treadmill seems to be the only option for running.
It has been a brutal winter for running. In 2011 and 2010 I ran the New Year’s race in Salisbury and we all jumped in the Atlantic afterwards. People still jumped in the ocean this year. I ran in Lowell this year, but I’m not sure I would have done it. Contrary to popular belief, I’m just not that freakin crazy!
Today I ran
will run 3+ miles on the treadmill to keep my 3 runs per week run alive. The New Year’s committment lives on!
My good friend over at Pursued by Angry Bees is running a 69 mile ultra race this June. The race is called The Wall Run and the course is next to Hadrian’s Wall. The Chinese aren’t the only people with a famous wall. Check out their website and the video. It is awesome. He is also raising funds for Doctors without Borders, so if you have a spare Quid, Dollar or Euro, toss one over the wall for a good cause.
Have a great weekend, stay warm and keep your running shoes dry!
