I enjoyed walking around the expo the day before the race. I got some new racing flats and some new training shoes. I got the same Mizuno Wave Riders that I like so much and then the Ultima based on the recommendation for my weight range. When I ran 10k last night in the Ultimas my toes hurt a lot at the end of the run. Not good. I don't know whether it was the shoes or simply the intervals on brick. Plus I got some thermal running tights and a proper waterproof jacket. And some of last year's running clothes at a great discount.
I tried to increase the race distance to a Half Marathon, since I like running that distance. But you can only drop down, not go up. Oh well.
Sunday was clear and quite cold. Eventually it was sunny too. This was the shortest race I've run since junior high school when I used to run the 440 relay.
