traveled to pleasant grove this morning to run the new year's half marathon. it was an informal race -- more of a training run with bib numbers. it was also -4 degrees out (-20 centigrade). i suffered from severe cases of ice face, ice eyes, and iceiceice hands, but i did have fun.
i unofficially took second place in the unofficial women's division (devra won), and i unofficially ran 1:33 with two traffic light stops. i really couldn't get myself to go any faster than that today. i ended up winning a crockpot, which i donated to team vierkant because i'm still trying to get rid of the 14 we received as wedding gifts.
we overworked my heater on the way home -- i think the inside of the car was 100 degrees, and we were still cold. now i'm sitting in a pot of boiling water, and i'm still cold. luckily my plan for the afternoon involves knocking all the giant icicles off of our roof.
