goal race: Buffalo Marathon 5/29
Several factors – the day’s schedule, physical and mental fatigue compounded by another windstorm – conspired to turn yesterday into rest day…for the better, as I think I needed it; and so pushed Monday’s run to this morning. The remaining winds turned this morning’s 14 miler to the park and back into a chilly one.
With the day off, had a nice meal afterwards, then it was off to the second run of the day, a late afternoon 12 miler just ahead of a frozen rain storm. This one took some extra effort, literally ‘pounding’ the pavement, but the spectacle of lighted runners in the park made it festive and easier than it could have been.
