That title might be a little misleading. Sorry. But today at 4:00 it was 42 degrees and I ran for the first time in recent memory in just one pair of pants and one long sleeved shirt. No thick Under Armour tights. No gloves. No three shirts and a wind jacket. And no hat. I felt sort of naked. And wonderful.
Apparently the lack of clothes helped me because I had an awesome tempo run. One mile warm up, four miles at mid-tempo pace (which actually turned into a little mini progressive run with each mile a little faster than the last) and one mile cooldown.
Now, I need your help. I got the e-mail today saying I didn't get picked in the lottery for Grandma's half marathon. So I'm trying to decide if I should run the full. The race is June 19th. I'm running the full in Madison Memorial Day weekend, so that would give me less then a month between the two. What do you think?
