Even when it is cold and windy, sunshine makes a run bearable. So once again, I waited until the afternoon to do a quick three-mile tempo run. I am hoping that I'll be able to do a good final long run on Friday before I go out of town to speak at a conference this weekend. It'll probably be my last chance for a long one before the Austin Marathon the next weekend. I am not even close to being in shape--I had originally planned on a really solid warm-up for the Tom King and Andrew Jackson races in March. Now, I am just hoping to finish.
