1. Have you flipped through the new Runner's World Trail edition yet? I devoured it the other night. Yip, now I'm searching for a good trail race. This Rails to Trails Marathon in WI has me interested... their website doesn't do it justice, but online reviews scream its praises. One thing is sure... a trail race is now in my sights for 2011. Have you run a trail race yet? I'm interested in your thoughts... how did it compare to road racing?
2. I'm breaking in a new pair of shoes... Asics GEL-Kayano 17. I just love how they feel on my feet.. BUTTA, PURE BUTTA! I'm hoping to race them for Illinois Half in 9 days. Do you think this is too early to race in new shoes?
3. The weather stalking has begun. Illinois Half in 9 days... which means today it popped up on weather.com's extended forecast. The early forecast looks awesome! Both races I've ran in 2011 have involved rain. Something's gotta give, right?!
