Yay it's Monday...

That title was sarcasm and should be duly noted. Our friends from the southern portion of the country are probably getting tired of weather reports on running blogs Pat....

Even though we have wind chills below zero and only seen the freezing mark twice in the past few weeks, we're still running outside!

We had out weekly TNT group training and the folks did fantastic. We were schedule for eleven miles but our park is a six mile loop and I couldn't have them not complete two loops...

Once again any type of liquid freezes up, so I had to supply fluids from the warmth of the car. You can get some evil looks from cold runners, I even had the music up loud so they could hear it.

I read that Pat ended his streak of consecutive days of running at 27 days. He inspired me to get out and run everyday and I have. Not sure when it's going to end but I know that it has changed my mindset for the better.

I say that because Sunday was a day that I didn't want to fight the elements and could have easily got on the trainer and called it a day. I remember when Katrina hit the South, I promised that I would not complain about snow and cold. None of us has been rescued from our rooftops or corralled into the Pontiac Silverdome for shelter. SO bring it on Old Man Winter because I have miles to run outside.

See ya on the road..........

It has felt cold here, but having lived up north (Maine) before I know we are wimpy here compared with what you guys deal with. Spring is only 2 months away. Well, actually here is is about 5 weeks, but where you are probably closer to 2.5 months, right? Hang in there. Art

If I had to put up with the weather you have to, my consecutive days would have been 2, 3 tops. I'm sure you'll make it to at least 28.

Did 3.28 miles today in a tech shirt and shorts. sorry. :)
