I had the greatest 16 mile run today. I ran from my house to downtown Palmer to the Post Office, to check my mail and back, with a 40 knot wind and 40 degrees. Standing water everywhere, but just the perfect temperature for a nice long run. I felt better than I have ever felt during and after a long run.
I was pretty annoyed at my iPod though. The silly thing quit at about 12 miles, so it never got recorded to Nike+. The battery runs down after only a couple of hours so I finally gave up and replaced it today with a brand new 5th generation purple iPod Nano. I guess I solved that problem!
I will be running again with Team In Training in August doing the Anchorage Big Wild Life Humpies full marathon. I plan to lump my 800 mile bike ride from Deadhorse to Palmer in July into that run so I can fundraise for it. I should have my new Team In Training website up in a couple of weeks.
