I woke up to yet another cold morning and the weatherman predicted no warm-up in temps for the rest of the day. That meant an early morning drizzle followed by a chance of light snow. Oh fun, that's what I want for my weekly long run at 6 in the morning. Anyway, I drove over to Rich's house so we could start our run there. Yesterday, I decided spontaneously to run the Grissom High School JROTC Wounded Warrior 5K with my fiance and son and figured it would be great to tie that in with our weekend long run. So Rich and I decided to leave his house and run along sections of the Rocket City Marathon course for about eleven miles to the starting line of the 5K race. We thought it would be kind of cool to run an 11 mile warm-up for a 3.1 mile race. Everything went well, Rich and I ran an easy pace and reached the starting line exactly 20 minutes prior to the start of the race. We only struggled a bit on the final mile of that warm-up run since it consisted of a serious uphill run that really challenged our knees and quads. So far, so good.
