Soundtrack . . .
She's driving away . . . with the dim lights on . . .
She's making a play . . .
She can't go wrong . . .
She never waits too long . . .
She's winding them down on her clock machine . . .
And she won't give up . . .
She's a frozen fire . . .
So, yeah. I ran the 5k. 11 degrees F at the start - and at the finish! My time was way, way off my goal, which disappoints. But I did it! (I'm a prima donna runner who trains on an indoor track during the winter, so this icy stuff made me a bit more conservative than I probably needed to be. But, hey! I didn't fall.)
When I crossed the finish line and grabbed a cup of water, I had to break through the ice before I could drink!
Oh, and one more thing: Thanks, Tom! For getting up to come with me, for the valet service, for the extra-hot seat heater on the way home, and for being my camera-man!
