|Meb Keflezighi at last year's Boston Marathon. Wow it was awesome to be there!|
It wasn't raining when I got up (later than normal on a Sunday morning), but I could hear the wind and I knew there was a wind chill (boo for wind chill in April). I was not excited but I have a race in May and I knew that the run had to get done.
I had to do a loop before picking up my trusty running companion Suz and figured that running into the wind on the way OUT would be better than on the way back. It was almost comically windy. Things were blowing around, sticks whipping my ankles, leaves blowing everywhere, dogs fighting the wind and trying to look like they were still having fun on their walks...
It was a rough run, but what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. And that wind (although it must have blown the energy completely out of me because I ended up in bed by 9:15 last night) HAD to have made me stronger!
Goal race is now 6 weeks away. Yay!
Congrats to all of you who ran Boston today (I was tracking Aron and a high school friend and they both rocked it!)- you were part of an epic race and I hope you had FUN!
