Yeah they are impressive LF. Also found out that I was mistaken on how fast I can run. I frequently use the treadmill, and the course was outside, which slowed me down considerably. I gave it all I had and I was mid 8's per mile. the kids on the other hand are running a mile in the 6's, there was 0 chance of me keeping up. Next year maybe I'll wear one of those orange triangles on my back so the kids don't run me over or mistake me for a tree.

It was a fun race. The coach had the kids run 2 miles before the parents showed up. It didn't slow them down much, the kids still beat the parents rather convincingly, those kids can run like the wind.
My son even slowed down so the old man could catch up, thought that was nice gesture...

Been a runner for 42 years. Start warm and strip down as you go. Maybe have someone at the halfway point to collect a layer. In my younger days at 32* I would prolly start off in shorts with a tee shirt, gloves and wind breaker (no hat) but over time my tolerance for the weather has changed. Good luck and start slow. Plenty of distance to use all the fuel in the tank the last 1/2 to 1/4 of the run.

Signed up to do my first ever half-marathon on Sunday. The distance isn't worrying me too much, but the weather forecast isn't boosting my confidence. Maybe into the low/mid 30's at the start with a rather light wind. Just a little concerned how heavy...or light, to dress. I'm a pretty sweaty guy, which leads to a nice chill after soaking through a layer. Haven't had the opportunity to run in chilly weather in forever, so I guess we'll just see how the body reacts!

So my boy is in cross country this year. Next week is the parent / child run. I believe it is a 2 mile run. I run a mile comfortably in around 8 minutes, 7 if I'm pushing it. Hope that is enough to keep up with the boy and all his buddies...
