Today was another URD [Unscheduled Rest Day]. Between a lack of sleep, having to take the kid for follow-up blood tests, eating too much and the snow, I just never got rolling. I’m hoping that the roads are clear enough at some point tomorrow for me to run outside. I really don’t want to have to do a long run on the treadmill right now.
I did make a new commitment today, though. I signed up for the Runnin’ of the Green (Island) 4-miler on March 15. Registration opened this morning, and it’s already got less than 200 slots left (700 maximum). I joined the Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club at the same time. The $12 membership got me a $5 discount on the race registration, so I’ll be ahead after two more races with them this year. (And that thought doesn’t seem scary in the least—what has happened to me?)
