11/28/13 – 5 miles
How can you tell if you’re serious about your training? You run 5 miles on Thanksgiving morning. I saw a number of people out walking (among them was the heavy-set guy who I see often, carrying one of those huge cups of soda from Circle K, as well as the guy who always says “See you at the races” when I pass him), and some on bicycles, but no one else dumb enough to be running. My thermometer read 46 degrees, but it felt much colder with the wind. It was long sleeved shirt, gloves & hat weather. 54 days until the marathon.
