11/18: Bitter cold out and so I ran on a treadmill at WSC. Cut it a tiny bit short because I wasn’t feeling well… which turned out to be food poisoning preparing to kick into high gear. Oh boy!

11/22: Small group, just me and John and Jerry. No one was feeling particularly clever so just an out-and-back on a windy morning.

11/4: Part of the Mall was already closed off for the follow week’s Veterans Day concert, so the run was a tiny bit shorter than normal due to the need to find new parking. Made an executive decision to avoid the Mall on Thursday and the following Tuesday.

11/8: Dragged a little at the end, but otherwise a nice jaunt through the Zoo.

The plan was to run 16 miles with my group (most of them are training for the Charleston Marathon), but my stomach just felt awful right from the start, and taking a gel at mile 4 actually made it worse. We were going to swing past the cars around the halfway point, both to refill water bottles and also for the other person who wasn’t training for the marathon to call it a day, and I ended up dropping out there. Half a long run is better than no long run at all, certainly. Still a little disappointing, though.
