afternoon run today after work...which means things had time to thaw out a bit and i had one SLUSHY run. my feet were soaked within the first mile and i sloshed and slipped my way through the entire run. the colder, crunchy snow has much more traction and makes for more even steps, but i guess the slush is a trade-off for the warmer temps. i ran at an easy pace today (8:15 average), but i kept it steady, including the hill portions. i am looking forward to a solid week of training...i haven't had one for awhile and i am excited to get things rolling again.

no speedy stuff today...saving it for tomorrow's SLCTC Beat the New Year 5k. should be fun, and a nice workout. easy pace today...still feeling a little of the foot but nothing like it was before. 

i just finished registering as a member of the USATF - Utah Division. i have a goal of finishing in the top 5 of the 2009 LDR circuit. my overall goal for 2009 is MORE RACING. this will keep me motivated to get out there and compete in more races around the state.

HAPPY 2009 to all!!!

i just beat the new year with 10 minutes to spare. it was a fun way to bring in 2009. the race was well-organized, there was good participation, cool shirts and plaques, etc. it was also FREEZING. 

i had a nice, long warm-up, although i never got warm. i started at the front of the pack and stayed within the first 15-20 runners throughout the race. the course was 2 1/4 laps around sugarhouse park. a lot of runners (especially the women) started out really fast, but most fell back by the second lap. i could see only one female ahead of me, and i was gaining on her. i finally caught her on the second-to-last uphill, we ran dead-even on the flat and downhill, and then she surged. it was a tough little uphill to the finish, and it got me. i was one stride behind her all the way into the finish chute, but i couldn't pass her. 

i didn't get split times...my hands were wrapped in gloves and two layers of sleeves (and my hands were STILL numb). so i clicked my watch at the start and the finish and that was going to be sufficient for this race. my time according to my watch was 20:32, making my average pace about 6:37.  maybe i could have gone harder, i don't know. but what i do know is that i most definitely prefer the marathon over the 5K...any day.

so that wraps up the 2008 year of running. i had a decent year, but i am just getting into it all. and i ended 2008 with inconsistent training, injuries, and overall burn-out. but 2009 is here and i am hungry to go after some new goals.

10 miles today with 3 MP. today was my LAST day at work, as i am starting school full-time. it will be nice to get on a regular sleeping schedule and have more time for running, as well as proper rest. as a going-away present, my co-workers got me a garmin forerunner 301. wow! i was so excited. speechless really. i wasn't expecting them to do something so nice, and i definitely don't deserve it. i am so excited!!!! can't wait to get out and put it to use.
