Great run in fairly ugly circumstances......spotty rain, 35 degrees, 10 to 20 mile per hour winds! Oh well I did it.  Change 22.....I have added another marathon to my 2011 schedule and will have to completely re-adjust my training plans to facilitate the success of my stated  running goals. 

41 days till the Cowtown Marathon. Oh Ya!

91 days till the Boston Marathon.......Yea!

Nice long run for the week, running in cruddy conditions always just helps me to appreciate the good times that much more or realize that the bad times could be worse.

So, are you going to do the cowtown challenge?

From Tom Slick on Sun, Jan 16, 2011 at 19:35:50 from 69.171.160.80

Ms. RAD, The Cowtown challenge? Is that the one where you run the marathon 5 years in a row? At this point in time my challenge is to run 8 marathons this year all stated in my Long term running goals for 2011.

From RAD on Sun, Jan 16, 2011 at 21:49:42 from 67.172.229.125

Cowtown challenge is to run the 5K or 10K on Saturday and then the Full on Sunday. You get an extra medal when you finish the full. Just extra loot for an extra run.

From Tom Slick on Sun, Jan 16, 2011 at 22:09:50 from 69.171.160.80

RAD - I will have to take a look at this when I get there, see what MarcE wants to do.

Cowtown will be a great training run for Boston

I'm more jealous about your running Cowtown than Boston!
