Wind blows but it makes you stronger*

That was all I could think today as I did my 8-mile long run (it was a cut-back week) in 20mph winds. Don't get me wrong, it was a gorgeous day--clear skies (for most of the run anyway) and 72 degrees. Gorgeous. As long as I could ignore the fact that I looked like a mime running against the wind. I kept wondering how I could show you. I realize that a picture of my wind-swept hair would be better, but this flag is all I have. It can't all be brilliant.

Mileage: 155.4 + 4.0 + 8.0 = 167.4 miles

*I cannot claim credit for this clever one-liner. I saw it on a running shirt a few years ago.

Good job on the 8 miler! Too bad it was windy! I hate running in the wind!

Running in the wind blows. But my 10 miles on the treadmill really sucked too.
