I ran 5 miles this morning with an average pace of about 10:30/mile which was pretty good considering IT WAS 84 DEGREES WHEN I STARTED.
I partially melted, but I ran on the Tobacco Trail where it is mostly shady. But I still used about half of my water to dump on my head instead of in my mouth.
And on more exciting running news, I am being considered for a book Melinda Hinson Neely is writing about marathons. I am not one of the six featured runners, but will be featured in a smaller part in her book. She enjoyed all the various stories of why people are running, and decided she couldn't leave anyone out.
So I guess I really have to run the Austin Marathon in February. You can read the details here.
I was also quoted in Parents magazine this month about being a working Mom with sick kids. They got Ashley and Audrey's ages wrong, and it wasn't this last winter, but the winter before. Oh well, I guess they can't get everything right. But really, read the article. What some Moms have done is CRAZY when their kids get sick. I am lucky in that Ray and I can swap out taking turns, or even do half days. That and I have an employer who is very understanding.
