8 miles. sunnyside up. 27 degrees with snow and ice crunching underfoot. i suspect that the animals coming out of hibernation won't be very happy.

double feature! 

race #1 (8:30am): adoption 5k at wheeler farm. i've been excited for this race all week, mostly because of the awesome, two-loop course on the dirt trails around the farm. i was also looking forward to running in a muddy mess, seeing as it has been wet and snowy all week. unfortunately, it has been a bit too wet, and most of the trail was washed out and unrunnable. so the course was modified -- a giant square on the roads and sidewalks surrounding the farm. not a terrible alternative, but definitely not the wheeler farm course i was excited for. however, it was still a fun race. there is just something about running in cold and snowy weather that is totally miserable yet totally satisfying. the time is unofficial since the results have not yet been posted and i didn't have my watch. but the course was slightly short, so in reality i probably didn't even break 19:00 today. however, there was no time to ponder on this -- we had to get to race #2!

race #2 (10:00am): run like health 5k at the university of utah. i am not including this as a race report because there were way too many variables and mishaps. first off, i was freezing cold. my body temperature dropped quite a bit on the drive from the first race to the second, and i couldn't stop shivering (i was also wearing wet clothes and shoes). next, the course was more than confusing with misplaced signs, ambiguous directions ("just head that way [clap, clap] good job"), course cutting (intentional and unintentional) and blinding snow. also, the course was way short -- 2.65 miles. my watch said 17:13 when i crossed the line -- so i will go with 20:11. i didn't run very well in either race today, but they were both great workouts and gave me the opportunity to continue to work on proper pacing in my quest for a sub-18.    

after the race, i ran 7 more miles around campus with james. it started snowing a lot harder on our second loop and i was totally done with the weather at that point. i was soaked through and freezing. finally, we finished off the day with a nice workout at the field house. saturday is by far the best day of the week.
