MLK Day!

Today, I'm off of work for Martin Luther King Day!  How about you?  Who else has today off?  Now you would think with a day off I could get in some good exercise.

I did 10 miles on the exercise bike today in 32:40 but I did not do my weights workout.  Why you ask?  Because our furnace went out last night so I had to buy a new furnace today.  The furnace guy got our existing furnace working but they are going to replace it on Wednesday.  Not exactly what I wanted to spend my hard earned money on right now.  Also loved spending my day talking about furnaces.  Oh well, what can you do?  It's kind of important to have heat in Michigan for the winter.  Perhaps I'll come vacation near Chris K's place for the week since I'm sure it's 80 and sunny there.

Looking forward to getting outside to run tomorrow.  Unfortunately we're looking at rain, freezing rain and 35 degrees so it's looking like a possible treadmill run again.  Great.

So I'm thinking of putting on a virtual 5k race sometime in February/March and I'm looking for ideas.  It seems like Adam's over at I am Boring did a great job on his.  I'm thinking of having a few small prizes as well to go along with it.  Give me your thoughts on what you would like to see in a virtual race.  Nothing too crazy but I need to put some ground rules together.  I'd like to hear all your ideas so have fun with it!

Have a great day and......Keep Running.

  2. I'm off today too. We ran a quick 5K late this morning.

    Please keep me posted if you do a virtual 5K in February. We haven't figured out a February race and yours might be the ticket :-)

  7. I don't have any ideas for a virtual race, but I think it would be awesome if you did. There is a severe lack of races where I live...keep us posted!

  8. Virtual race - I'm in if you have a snail classification. I need to ease the pain of my DNF in Adam's Race. Beer works too.

    Bummer about the furnace. Money well spent. If you are frozen you cant run.

    School is in session here. Im off in spirit as well.

  14. Presidents day is in February. A race rule could be that part of the course be on a street named after a president or goes past a location name after a president? Just a thought.
