Almost Turned a Corner
So, when I went running this morning the temperature was high 40’s, and the air was dry and pretty calm (light breeze). Things went pretty well, better than the sluggishness of late, which inspired the “Must be the lack of caffeine” limerick (see previous posts).
How-some-ever, if I’m to do the Austin half-marathon in February, as part of the Dead Runners Society World Conference (see the link here: http://drswc2012.info/), I’ll have to ramp up the training.
Shouldn’t be hard — the weather in Gainesville in December and January is most inviting, at least for this runner: cool, dry. It’s a welcome relief after slogging through yet another unbelievably hot and humid summer (which here in Gainesville, goes from about late April through early October).
That’s why I’m heavily exploring the idea of retiring in North Carolina.
