Winter Race: 1

In Uncategorized on January 10, 2010 at 7:27 pm


9 a.m.

5° F.

If you’re smart, you’ll spend this frigid January morning indoors. With pancakes. And maple syrup.

If you’re my girlfriend, you’re in North Park, gearing up for a five-mile run with a few hundred others. The race is a benefit for some kind of youth ministry, so the pressure is low. But Ky has begun her 16-week training for the Pittsburgh Marathon, and winter running is a must. Ky has never run such a short race. “Pacing is key,” she keeps saying. “I need to not burn out too quickly.”

Easy f0r her to say. I can’t run around the block.
