With this winter weather (today, Friday, is the worst -can barely be outside, and my son going skiing for the weekend), Florida seems like years away. Well, it can't be that bad too much longer --this winter wind reminds me of the winds of March at Caumsett Park 50K and St.Patrick's day races..ugh -I hope to do both races.
But let's get this weekend over with first --a long run in the snow????????
Rob, Frank and Anthony and I (well, Anthony maybe not as he doesn't need the long run!!!) hope to drive to the Albany winter marathon on Sunday. I was actually looking forward to this race (last year ran it in 3:40) until we got the forecast of snow...we will see what happens. Maybe they will make it into a snowshoe race!
