Eating candy and hitting “refresh”

48 hours from now, I’ll be running into downtown Carbondale, PA, many miles from the finish line in Scranton. The weather forecast is looking very good indeed: mid-to-upper 40s at the start, mid-to-upper 60s at the finish and the little wind forecast would be a tailwind.

On the other hand, it’s only Friday morning. Everything can change. So I’ll bring my entire running wardrobe. Just in case. And keep checking the weather every hour or so.

In the meantime, I’ve discovered the value of candy for carbo-loading: Swedish Fish and Twizzlers both offer an excellent calories vs. carbs ratio. Oh, and Medjool dates are also jam-packed with happy carbs. I never get to eat this stuff.

There’s not much more to say. I’m just twiddling my thumbs and not running today. I’m gald glad I have work to distract me.
