Second, I am remarkably happy with my decision to not train for the May 50k (oh, and not race it, too). I had an 8 and 10 mile run and had pain after both. It lasted longer after the 10 miler and that was the final decision to nix the race for 50k. It'll come, just not yet. I cut down a lot this week, doing just 3 short runs: 4, 3, 2. I actually ran a 7:42 for the 2nd mile in the 2 mile run. I was quite please with that and would say my effort level was about 6/10. I have to redo my zones, but will wait another month or two before attempting that. I also need new batteries for my HR monitor. Not sure if I'll race the 15k in March. I may ask to switch to the 6k when I get there. If I can't switch, I may just take a DNF after doing 5 or 6. Either way, I get a nice long sleeve t and a free beer (well, kinda free...).

Oh wait! I remember:
If you were going to go to a group run, what would you expect? Just curious. I've been thinking about starting one. There are quite a few runners around me and thought they might like the option!
