Getting Myself Psyched Up for Tomorrow's Race

Last year, the January Thaw took place the day after a blizzard. It was looking pretty gosh darn good that this year's race was going to be a lot different...but Mother Nature disagreed and dumped some snow and a lot of ice on Maine yesterday and today! Better yet - the temp at the start time tomorrow will be 17F with a windchill of 0F!~ Brrrrr!





I love, love, love it when Ward comes back to me and runs in with me.  



My best memories of this race last year was that Ward, Stacy and I all walked away as winners! Here we are - all of the overall and age group winners! Ward was 3rd overall and 2nd in his age group, I was 1st woman overall, and Stacy was 1st in age group! We rock.

Now I have to get my outfit ready for tomorrow!

  3. You MUST share your outfit for tomorrow -- I'm all kinds of interested in HOW one dresses for 17-degree weather with a wind chill of ZERO! Brrrrrrrrrrrrr is an understatement!!!!

  5. Have a great race! And like Jenn's Adventures - I would love to know how you dressed for the weather...to be warm, but stay comfortable during the run.

  7. I hope the race went well!  The weather also decided to be mean to my husband and I for our 5K race today and dumped some snow and 18 degree temps on us!  It wasn't too bad, but running in the snow is tiring.
