Winter Running

It's 30 degree outside, wind gusts to 34 mph with a wind chill of 17. I'm glad I didn't look at this until I sat down to write. J called me to run on the treadmill today. I said sure, but asked if she wanted to run outside with me. We met after lunch and did 3 miles. It was a little chilly, but I dressed well today. When we turned into the wind I kept going! My inner voice told me how great I looked and that I was a marathoner. It was great to run with someone today. When I got to the end of the run I asked if she was going to stop or keep going. She kept going. I think could have also, but didn't want to push it with this chest cold. I walked about .4 miles and came home, all in about 30 min. It was a great run all things considered.

  1. Congratulations!! What a mental accomplishment!! We ran outside as well and had those headwinds that nearly put us at a stand-still, so KUDOS to you!! About 95% of the marathon completion is overcoming mental barriers, so keep up the great work!!
