By the way, did anyone else start the new year off in their running shoes? I had one bit of Running Streak business to finish up, as well as the annual New Year's Day group run with a few local friends. In keeping with the recent arctic blast, our temps on NYD were the coldest yet...how does -20 grab you?

None the less, my 2018 calendar already has stuff happening almost every month through September! What the WHAT???
Later this month, I'll be returning to a nearby town for the Chamburrr Scurry 5K (Marshalltown, IA). I first ran this race in 2014, and it was cold. Colder than cold, actually. Extremely windy, and the "feels like" temps that day were in the single digits. I returned in 2015 and 2017 and had better race day conditions. Fingers crossed Momma N will play nice on the 27th.

How's your 2018 race schedule look? It's no secret I'm excited to do some racing, though I'm probably not gonna be doing many of these with PR's on my agenda. I'm just so thankful for the gift of running, the finish times are no longer a priority.
Do you have any races on your 2018 roster yet? Any new events, or a few favorites?
