Another treadmill run in the stuff hotel gym.  Why do hotels think the gym should be set at 75 degrees?

Another run at the cabin this morning, the roads were quite chunky with Ice and the elevation really is noticable but I love running in the mountains.

So my middle son started Jr. High this year and wants to run track like his older brother, Great!! I got an e-mail from the school a few weeks ago asking if any parents could volunteer to help out with the track coaches.  I responded and said sure, I'll help out.  Well I went to the coaches meeting last night and it turns out none of the teachers at the school wanted to coach track this year, and me and 1 other mother of 5 are the only ones that showed up, which all of a sudden made us the Track coaches for the Jr. High.  WTH, I've never even ran track, never ran the 200, never used starting blocks, never held a shotput, never jumped over a horizontal bar and now I'm the track coach.  Ahhhh!  Help if you have any advise for me!

Biggest mileage week since June of 2013, wanted to do 10 today and make it a 50 mile week but my legs were burning a bit.  I think 50 feels like a pretty good number, maybe I'll start working on speed and keep mileage around here for a while.

I flew into Philly last night and have a 2 hour meeting today and then fly home, no time for a run, plus I didn't really want to go running around cold Phillidelpia this morning so no run.

My flight was late getting in last night so I slept in and waited for the kids to go to school before going out to run.  Nice easy run on the dirt trail, there was about 1" of trackless snow, which is kind of like running on the beach in the sand but colder.

3 more miles with 'my' track team.  First day of being a couch went well.
