It's March?!?

Ok- wait a minute. Is it really March 1. What happened to January and February? I mean, I know we had some snow (ok- a lot of snow), and I was kinda busy, but still. How is it March already???

The problem with it being March is that I only have 2 months to get ready to run the Broad Street Run in Philly on May 2. That's a 10 mile race. The longest race I have run up to this point is 5 miles. I have to go DOUBLE that- soon!

I know that some people train and know if they can run 8 miles, they can do 10 miles on race day. I can't do that. For me, I have to know that I have done 10 miles before and can make it. Yes, it's a mental thing- but that's how it works for me.

So- maybe now that it's March, Mother Nature will get her act together and stop messing with our weather. I run at the Y, but there are only so many times I can go in a circle around the track. I need to get outside and pound the pavement. And apparently, I need to do it soon!!!
