01.02.2018 Easy 5 miler, race search/plan

I ran an easy 5 miler this afternoon to get the legs going after yesterday's race and the stair climb earlier.  I ran inside because of the pain of yesterday's cold and I kept it nice and easy.  I would call it a recovery run, but I really don't feel like it was recovery, just the slower pace.  

Tomorrow I need to do a long run. Only getting in 3.1 miles on Monday starts the week off slow and I need to get some miles in before Friday.  At this point, I really want to be 30+ miles every week from here until each of my races.  

Speaking of races, one of my goals for 2018 is to get back racing more often.  I have two possible races I am looking at in February.  The Cupid's Chase event on Feb. 10th in Glen Rock, New Jersey is one.  The other is the Purim 5K in Fair Lawn, New Jersey on February 25th.  I will keep you posted.  I have heard good things about the Purim race and I did the Cupid's Chase twice so I don't think I can go wrong.
