38º ran out past phoneton to Charleston falls. I do not do it often because part of the route is a tad treacherous, but manageable. The falls were pretty sweet as they were half frozen wall of ice and half water running over. On my way back, about 8 miles in the wind jumped to about 20 mph and the rain started falling. Then it started pelting mixed with ice. Put my head down and enjoyed the run.

40º and still a tad windy. 2 punk kids started to pass me going up a hill on thier bikes. I noticed the bikes had no gears so I passed them back and smoked them. The little things that make us smile.

Odd how it was 12 degees warmer today yet felt colder than yesterday. 6 mile warm up then intervals. 6x3 Min w/ 2min active recoveries. (6:40-6:55pace) - it's been awhile since I have done any intervals and my old body realizes it!

I have not raced i n a long time I figured I needed a 5K and a half before I run another Marathon in June. Cool morning race, 28º, but no real wind so that was nice. The race was hilly with 25 turns which took off some time for sure. I  am not in 5K shape, but all things considered did OK. Won my age group and 4th overall master. I did not start too fast but the hills sucked my legs up and I was feeling my lack of fitness at the end. Good training run :)
