The sleet and rain of outrageous weather,
Or to take comfort in ones own bed,
And give the finger to the race season?
I'm suppose to race a duathlon this Saturday, just a short three hours north of the Twin Cities. The Kickin' Leaves Duathlon in Grand Rapids, MN consists of a 2.5 Mile Trail Run/ 10 Mile Bike/ 2.5 Mile Trail Run.
I have a cold...a real doozy. The race time temperature currently being forecast will be between 35-38 degrees. It will be raining. It may even sleet.
Now my good Iowegian friend, Mr. William Jenks, recently completed IM Moo with a cold and sore throat. So, if I skip a simple sprint event due to a cold I can certainly be classified a woosie in comparison.
Throw in a potentially muddy run course, as the run portion is a trail run and one can view the event as being totally fun or totally insane.
And I'm just not ready to start packing cold weather gear for an event. Plus, I already did my Miserable As Hell Weather event this year.
What to do. What to do. Stay tuned.
