Just a short five miler at an easy pace around the town I teach in. Tomorrow will be a similar pace and distance to keep the legs fresh for Sunday's Mid-Winter 10-Mile Classic. Really looking forward to the race. Nothing else to report.
Post-edit: The Mid-Winter 10-Mile Classic was just postponed for three weeks later. According to the race organizers, the police department says high snow banks have narrowed the roads and with Saturday night's snowfall, though nothing dire, it would only add to apparently already unsafe conditions all around. The police department wasn't comfortable with it so they wouldn't issue permits. I understand the call and am sure it was the right one, but still a bummer. Oh well, life goes on.
Ran 5.1 miles @ 8:21/mile pace.
