Cold-arse race this morning: survived.
It actually wasn’t bad at all. While it was pretty chilly, we had a bright blue sky, lots of sunshine, and clear dry roads. I’m sort of getting used to cold races….they really aren’t that bad. As long as you get a good warm-up in. And don’t have huge expectations about your time.

After the race, I hurried home for a hot shower and a quick lunch before an afternoon committee meeting with for my rescue. Then home to cook up some football goodies and in a bit, we’re off to a little SuperBowl gathering!
Today’s EAT: The hubs and I are making this Spicy Peanut Dip with some beef satay and these Balsamic Soy-Glazed Wings to bring to the par-tay. (Actually, at this precise moment we are attempting to placate our overzealous smoke detector. Apparently baking wings in a 500-degree oven is too much for our little apartment oven!)
Today’s DRINK: I picked up some Magic Hat Hefeweizen for our SuperBowl sipping. I am excited to try it!
Today’s RUN: With warm up and cool down, I probably got 6-7 miles in today.
