When you sign up for a race in January in Upstate NY you are never quite sure what the weather will be. Yes, it is winter, but that doesn't mean much (look at last weekend - it was 45F!!). Today we were not quite so lucky. I checked the weather before we headed out and here is what I saw: 25F, 12 mph winds, feel like temp of 15F. Hmmm, it'll be cool with a wicked wind for part of the race.

ADP and I bundled the kids up and headed down to the start of the race. Thankfully we both pre-registered for this free race so all we had to do was initial we were there. We signed the kids in to the kid activity/care table and were off to stretch (ADP) and find friends (me). We found my winter running buddy right away.

|Field House...the start and end of the race|
Total: 3.11 miles in 28:00 min (9:00/mi pace)
mile 1: 8:58
mile 2: 9:06 (walked to get rid of my side ache)
mile 3: 9:04
0.11 mi: :52
When I finished I had to turn in my time (free = low key) and then I went back outside to catch ADP finishing his 10K.

We're doing well: 2 PRs in one day. Now all we need is a PACKER VICTORY and the day will be as close to perfect as possible.
