Blogging on the road to the Louisville Triple Crown of Running

Training in the Winter

I guess this is the time of year that separates the truely dedicated with those who are just mildly interested. This past Saturday with group run was brutal. I passed by a bank that displayed the time and temperature. It was ready 12 degrees. I was thinking to myself, this is crazy. We went for our run. Part of course that we ran was covered in ice and snow. I proceeding with caution, while I know it is important to get conditioned to run in these conditions, I also know if I slip and fall, I could injure myself badly with only a month to go to the Anthem 5K.

One thing for sure you have to be ready for all weather, because you never know what Louisville has in store for March.

About Me

I've never been considered an athlete; I didn't compete in sports in high school or college. I just started running in August 2006 as a fun way to keep healthy and stay in shape after losing 55 pounds. I've run in three races since then: the Race for the Cure 5K and the Outrunning Autism 5K in October and the Snowman Shuffle 4 Mile in January.

I'm currently training with the Running 101 group at Fleet Feet Sports, preparing for my first Triple Crown of Running. My goal is to finish each race. I also plan to run in the Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon.
