The Northern VA area is calling for a possible wintry mix tomorrow. With any luck, it will be absolutely nothing like what happened last year about this time, namely the formation of a sheet of ice over the DC area which left people stranded for up to 8(!) hours on stretches of 395 and other parts of the beltway. It really caught VDOT with their pants down and they caught a great deal of flack for not having pre-salted the roads. Of course now they put salt down if ice is mentioned at all by the weather folks, so that's good. No workout today save for a stretching routine; so pretty much a rest day. Tomorrow I'll head out for a run during lunch at work.
As a retired Marine aviator, running has been a part of my life for... well, pretty much my whole life. In the Corps, I ran because I had to stay in shape as part of the job. Now, I run because I want to. I signed up for my first half marathon just before I got out of the service as a way to make sure that I kept pt'ing, even though I no longer "had" to. But I soon discovered that I really enjoyed distance running. I started this blog on a whim to see if it would be fun to keep a running (sorry) dialog on the training and events I participate in, as well as share other interests.
