GW Birthday Classic 10k

Ugh..."beautiful" day for the first race of 2011. It was 70 degrees yesterday; 45 today with huge wind gusts making it feel more like 35. Hoping for a tail wind for a few miles. The 10k is on a large road, but next to a construction zone, with 45mph gusts....if I get through the head wind, I still have to escape the three-story dirt tornado blowing by. And an empty portojohn just slid eight feet out of line in the last gust. I am NOT going in that death trap.

But the volunteers and staff from Pacers have been awesome, and the course looks like a fun one...especially when the wind is to my back!
