I am proud of this race because, while I am not the fastest I have ever been, I am trying very hard to train during my first (insane) semester of teaching. Sub 7s... I'll take it! I hope that I can continue to train until I am back up to my potential.

I was supposed to turn this race into a long run, but I was too tired and cold once I stopped to get started back up again. I should have time this week to get one in though.

Time to make some finals!

56 laps around the indoor track... wow.  I have a lot of respect for those of you who have trained in the winter every year. This is my first cold weather training in a while and I have been a major sis!

2 mile tempo with my brother! hills galore, so the "tempo" speed wasn't too fast, but still hard.

The first annual "Frosty Frolic"!

My brother wanted me to run the bike loop (10.5) with him and I said sure, knowing he usually does his long runs at 9 minutes I thought I could shuffle through it and be nice and sore for Christmas festivities. Instead, he wanted to go closer to 8 minute pace. It was hilly, cold and windy (30 mph gusts in our faces!) but a TON of fun :) I did lots of catching up with my best friend who came along for the fun, and we finished averaging 8:15 pace, and ran most miles sub 8 because we were distracted by our talking. Needless to say I am sore! Next year we are making shirts!

This was, sadly, my longest run of 2010. The double digits make me feel like a runner again!

Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays!

My brother Brent has joined the FRB crew! He is the last Scheitlin to take up running, but has done so with a vengeance. He finished his first marathon in October after running less than a year, and is now putting his name in for the JFK 50 miler and training for the Eagleman Tri.

We are planning to run the Charlottesville Marathon together in April (his second my third). Since I have no one to train with in Farmville, I will hopefully be motivated by seeing him rack up the miles!
