The Buffalo Creek Half

To run or not to the Spring Thaw...that is the ?

So, there is a race coming up next weekend called the Spring Thaw.  You can run 10, 15 or 20 miles.  I, of course, would do the 10, as that is where I am at with my training.  I have yet to register for it (I know I am late!) because I was not quite confident enough to take it on.  But I am truly considering it now.  It is on the same course my first half will be on.  That 1/2 is scheduled for March 31st.

A friend of mine is running in the race.  I asked her if I could run along side of her.  She said YES!  So I think I am going to register for it today.  If I complete that 10 mile race, I think it would give me a boost of confidence for the 1/2 on March 31st.  I haven't told my husband yet.  Hopefully he won't mind so much!

On another note, got in a good 10 miles on the bike today.  Hoping to get out and run 2 or 3 later, but I certainly was pleased to get that in.  I've been trying to bike once or twice a week to work some different leg muscles.  I think it helps.  We'll see this weekend when I have my long run with Joanne.  I'm hoping to do 9.  Hopefully, the weather will cooperate this time.  There is certainly no guarantee for that!

Here's to a great day!
