It was 34 degrees yesterday morning when I went for my run. 34 degrees Fahrenheit on May 29th. Two degrees above freezing. To be honest, I'm not complaining. Hate me if you will, but I'd rather run in this weather any day than 70-80 degrees. I keep saying to myself that Mother Nature really likes me and is helping me have a kick-butt training cycle with the cool temps, but then I think she might be just tricking me and will slam us with a 50-degree increase on the day of the KRRT Half Marathon. Ha ha, no heat acclimation for you.

Speaking of 100 miles...I've only 4.34 miles to go to hit it. I was thinking on my run yesterday how every step was already adding to my monthly personal distance record of 89.1 miles set in July 2012. I know it's not really a big deal. It's just a number, just like 5 or 39 or 74, but it's nice and round and one of those marks I've wanted to hit. I've got five miles on the schedule for Saturday, so I've got this in the bag.
Speaking of Finn's party...we are going with a Super Mario theme. The boys and I started working on coin block piñata and planned out the cake. Sunday looks like it is going to be a great day weather wise - sunny and in the high-60s.
