I have been fine. I have been bundling up, wearing my Yaktrak, smiling and taking pictures and averaging fourteen miles a week.
That is, until this week.
I don't know what happened. Kids are on vacation from school this week and Mr. RWM is home. We have no real plans and I have no excuse for not running. I did have a run planned on Monday with BRF#1 but Gracie got sick and wanted me. That will always come first, but that was MONDAY! And on Wednesday, it hit 30 degrees. A freaking heat wave here in Rhode Island and I still didn't run!
I have been rethinking my racing schedule for the year too. Mostly, because I just don't feel like I will ever be able to run over ten miles again. Yeah, I know that isn't true, but that is where I am. The only race that I am actually registered for is the Philadelphia Broad Street Run on May 3. Luckily, it only goes up to 10.
I have be eyeing a half marathon in April, but if I don't get some decent long runs in, it just won't happen. Maybe I should just pull the plug and register?
I am sure this rut will be short lived and I know I will come out of it. I think I am just over, -10 wind chill runs. Maybe a few good ones on the treadmill will help. Oh wait, is that such a thing? You're right, I still would rather run outside.

Ok, lets do this! Lets finish out the winter strong. Who's with me?!
