Running Recap

Thursday was cold and rainy so I was relegated to running on the treadmill.  My first experience on the never ending belt in a long time.  Needless to say it was miserable.  At least the baseball playoffs were on TV.  I ran 5 miles and the Cardinals ending up losing.  Wainwright was tough but Holiday……

Friday was a day off since I would be waking up at 05:00 on Saturday to get in a long run.  The family was leaving for the Broom Orchard Pumpkin Festival in the morning and not getting back until late.  The temperature was a chilly 34 degrees and it was pitch dark when I left.  The moon was out but so was fog.  I ran around Washington Park and back totaling 11 miles.  Deciding on how much clothing to wear takes some tweaking.  Because I haven’t run in cold weather in a while I was overdressed and was drenched with cold sweat by the time I got back.  0.5 miles from home I got to wave good bye to Alex and the crew heading up to Chicago.  Fast Feet boys……
