Not the smartest thing but it was necessary. Had to get up early to take care of an experiment. Back in time to make breakfast with the girls and then headed out to the race. The weather looked great. However, about two miles out from the start it the snow began. The warm-up was ok on the way out but back to what would be the finish it was pretty brutal. I was exhausted. Both from the week and another night of little sleep. I had no idea what I was going to do. Spoke to a number of the usual suspects at the start and then just lined up. I could tell things weren't going to go my way in the first half mile and decided to just use it as a harder workout. Immediately after the race I jumped into the car and headed home to make up some family time after having been gone the whole week. I have to find a healthier way to keep family, work, and running in my routine... The good news is I had fun despite the really sub-par weather and time. So things are going well just not ideal.
