Feels like: 10!!!!! AH!
Also....Winter Weather Advisory until 6am Tuesday for blowing and drifting snow. 3-5" expected.
Husband and I decided to run before he left for wrestling practice today.......before the snow got worse. It wasn't bad when we started, but it wasn't fun.
We set out for 4 miles at 8am. I was able to keep up with him for the first 2 miles. But for the first 2 miles the wind and snow were at our back. As soon as we turned around.......BAM!!......good bye breathing ability! I was swallowing snow and hacking snot for half a mile before I figured out how to deal with it.
Just before mile 3 I found that wall. My body just didn't want to move forward anymore. I wasn't cold, I was just heavy. However, I wasn't discouraged. I just made myself go forward. My mantra at the moment is that it isn't about time, it's about covering the distance.
When we finally finished, and we were walking snowmen. Husband's beard was covered in ice and his headphone cord was frozen to his beard :) My eyelashes kept sticking together. Ha! I even had a small snowball in my jacket hood!
PS......Melissa at Crazy or Determined? Just finished a half marathon on Sunday! She did AWESOME! And could use your love :) Head on over and let her know that running 13.1 miles is no small feat!!!
