SAS Gaurd House reverse run

Since I did't want to risk getting bored, I ran the Gaurd House 4.5 miler in reverse. I was told that the reverse run might be a little easier, but running in 40 degree weather is never really easy, although more tollerable than cycling in it. In the end my time was about the same.
Of special note, I mentioned in the last post that this is a hilly run. The reverse run allows for a better view of the hills for some reason and I've got to say that this must be the biggest hills in NC outside of the Smokey Mountains. I'll try to post some pics soon.

If it doesn't get snowed out, I plan on riding with the Thorns and Roses on Saturday.

Off to buy more Christmas presents, have a great weekend.

Running again

I'm starting to feel really good in my runs. I did the SAS "Gaurd House" run at lunch today. Basically it takes you to all three gates at SAS using roads and jogging paths. The total distance is about 4.5 miles and my time was 39:30. I've been told that this is a really slow route due to the large number of hills so I feel pretty good about my time. Plus I really wasn't pushing myself too much since I hadn't done the route before.

Hopefully this is a good trend as I'll need to run more as the days get shorter and colder.
