Yes, I know I’ve been absent for a while again. A lot of stuff going on at work and a baby that’s about 5 weeks away from making her arrival will do that to you!
Anyway, on to the news of the day. I ran the Deer Run 10K this past Saturday – my “tune up” race to the Door County Half Marathon taking place in just 5 short days. Last year, I ran this race in 54:42 (when lack of training and knee issues torpedoed the run). This year, my goal for the race is sub-50:00. I’ve felt great for a while, ran well and have had no physical issues to speak of. I’m expecting a good run.

I officially committed to my first race of 2010 – The Samson Stomp 5K.
The only catch? It’s outside. In Wisconsin. In January. I don’t know how many of you have been to the upper Midwest in winter but it’s cold. And snowy. And cold!
Still, it’ll be good to get back to racing again. I haven’t done one since the half marathon in May of 2009. I kind of ignored the 5K distance as I was preparing for the half marathon last year so it will be nice to try out the short race again.
If you’re in the Milwaukee area, consider checking it out. It’s at the Milwaukee County Zoo and supports a great facility and cause!
