1. Despite a strong start and a big early lead, my team lost. Mark your calendars now, the rematch is March 5th!
2. I've been on the lookout for a good running jacket. I have cold weather running clothes, but not that good outer layer to block the wind. For the last few weeks I've had my eye on a Craft jacket at Running Warehouse. I'd been dragging my feet ordering it because I couldn't decide if I wanted the black (practical) or red (fun). Yesterday I got an email that there was a sale on the sale items! Clearly a sign that I needed to buy it (and a few other things - I may have a slight problem when it comes to that site). I went with fun and got the red one!
3. I made a real rookie fueling mistake before my long run last weekend and paid the price. As I mentioned in my post about last year's snow, I didn't run on Saturday morning because it was drizzly and cold. I intended to wait until Sunday, when it was supposed to be really nice, but then I made the decision that I should just go ahead and run on Saturday afternoon. I'm not really sure why I decided this since I wasn't mentally into the run from the very beginning. And by about 2 miles in, I knew that my stomach wasn't going to let me get to 10 miles. I ended up making it about 5.5 - with a fair amount of walking mixed in. This is what happens when you have ice cream with lunch and decide to run 2 hours later. Not my smartest moment.
