Cold Morning 5K
I received the promised polo shirts from the folks at the Surfside Beach Marathon/half Marathon for signing up early. It is a really handsome looking shirt that I don't mind wearing as a business casual attire. So, if the Houston Marathon doesn't cripple me, I shall be on the beach to run a leisurely half marathon.
I also received an email from Harra regarding the Lucky Trails Marathon on March 19th. I am contemplating running this rather than the Little Rock race. Decisions, decisions.
I went for a quick 5K tune up run this morning. It was crisp and on the chilly side. I wore the wind breaker I got at the HMSA 25K to keep warm.
The pace was slow, finishing the run in 30:30. I am resisting buying gloves. The hands were very cold and stiff this morning.
I am setting 5 hours as my marathon target. Hopefully, I can make it. Long range forecast still shows highs in the 70's. If so, the second half of the marathon is going to be on the warmer side of comfortable for me.
