1. Thanks for the input on carrying ID and other stuff while running. A lot of you mentioned a Road ID. And honestly it's been something I've been meaning to get, I just haven't yet. In my mind since I've spent a good chunk of time running on the treadmill at the YMCA lately, I didn't think it was absolutely necessary. BUT. You all will be happy to know that last night I placed my order for a Road ID. A black one. With my info and emergency contact numbers. And it's supposed to ship on Monday. Can't wait for it to arrive!
As for the other stuff I carry, normally I don't take anything with me when I run. But with some longer runs during half marathon training, I need to take along some Gu, get myself ready for the race in May and figure out what works. And I wouldn't take my cell phone, but lately I've been doing my long runs while I'm at my parents' house. And while they don't live in the middle of nowhere, they do live on the outskirts of town. And my Mom worries, so she'd like to see me have my phone with me. And because I'm a good daughter, I do. I'm going to look into some options and when I make a decision, I'll let you know!
2. It was t-shirt and short weather tonight when I headed out for my run. Gorgeous! Too bad Mother Nature is going through a grumpy phase. There's snow in the forecast for the weekend. And colder temps. Grrr. Hopefully if any of that white stuff does fall it melts quickly.
3. The Madness. It's started! So happy. And a bunch of upsets this morning. Seriously, Old Dominion? Murray State? Villanova barely squeaking by Robert Morris? I love it. Time to go watch some more.
