T-shirt and shorts

Just got done with treadmill run. Why in the world would I run on the treadmill on a record-setting (?) day of weather? And I am not talking about record setting for cold but heat. Today's high was around 60 degrees with a glorious sun and I spent the day working over spreadsheets under artificial lights (but it was warm). It's budget season and work is busy so I had to settle on a machine to move me this evening. I also must admit I had to treadmill it yesterday due to a planned annual lunch out with the L.L.Bean running crew of Ethan Hemphill, Tom Tero, Jim Gott, Mike Simensky and ex-Beaner Sam Downing. It was a great lunch, and my lamb burger was much more pleasing than a run given how sore I was from the weekend's cross country workouts. Last night I ran 5.5 and tonight 5 miles, both at around a 7:30 pace. It is nice to be getting back in the groove and races are starting to appear on the horizon, including the Mid-Winter 10-Mile Classic in Cape Elizabeth.

One item of interest I wanted to pass on is information on a movie about marathoning that is scheduled for a viewing in select theaters on January 24th. Check out Spirit of the Marathon.

Treadmill or not, at least you ran. Hey man, you going to be at Bradbury this weekend? I'm planning on making a long run out of it if you care to join me.
