Ice Road Runners...

Yesterday was the first day of training for the Holy Half. Good Ole Hal Higdon had us running 3 miles as a start, so that's what we did. Nick, the guy I'm running with, and Taryn, his wife were troopers and piled on the clothes to run with Jenn and me. It was the first time we had all run together, but it worked out well. We started at the front of Andrews University but were soon on the roads around the school. There is a ton of snow on the ground and there were quite a few icy spots on the roads. After about a mile and a half, Nick and I picked up the pace a bit and ran together for awhile. It felt REALLY good to be running again! It was the hottest day of the week at 34 degrees, so tonight's run will be even colder. I usually like the cold because I don't overheat.
Tonight's run is going to be some intervals. I'm pretty excited about that, so pray that we don't blow out an ankle on the ice!
