This morning I met a group of guys at Highland High (Jake, Fritz, Kevin, Nathan Krah) for a cold run through the slush of the unplowed roads. I managed to keep my feet reasonably dry through about six miles. We ended up running 10 miles in 1:15 which was not bad considering the conditions. With my mile jog up to the school that makes a decent 11 mile run. Not bad since I'm still a bit sore from the race yesterday.

I wore my Brooks Cascadia trail shoes which was mostly a good call but they aren't as cushy and my heel hurts a little.

Nice run Rob and it was finally good to run with you in something other than a race (where I'm never really with you, because you always finish way out in front of me). Great mileage after coming off of that competitive 10k yesterday! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Thanks John - I knew I was forgetting someone but you were so far ahead of me for most of the run.

You're looking strong this year.

Caught you trolling Lets Run instead of teaching high school! :)

Yeah, I did that this morning Collin. I was going to start my watch to see how long it took Jake to notice.
