Boogity Boogity Boogity

ORN: 5 miles total, with 1 at 9:08 tempo

Boogity Boogity Boogity!
Let’s go racin’, boys!

With apologies to NASCAR legend and announcer Darrell Waltrip, I’m using his catch phrase to celebrate getting to race again. It’s been a long winter and finally, Saturday, I get to run a race, the first since the Rocket City Marathon on December 6.

The Sam Costa Half Marathon kicks off the road racing season in central Indiana. It’s a smallish race of 200-300 with few frills and good organization. The weather is looking about perfect, projecting sunny skies and temps in the low to mid 40s. Shorts and long sleeves will work.

I’ll post a report over the weekend. It’s great to look forward to something besides just a long training run this weekend.

Persevere.

PS. Technical note: I've added a feature for email subscription to this blog...see the box on the left. If you don't like RSS or bookmarks, you can get these breathless, timeless, riveting, awe-inspiring blather via email.

Not being a NASCAR fan, I thought the title was something you learned from the grandbabies over the weekend!

Good luck, good weather, good running!

Sounds good. Have a great race!
