wind in my face



...the whole freaking run at the cowtown marathon on saturday. ugh. and the brown dust was everywhere.

i did the 10k in 1:29 and limped across the finish line. lame, i am, seriously. i have hurt my IT band on my left knee.

so that day, north texas had winds gusting to 60 mph. i really thought we'd have everything forecast -- thunderstorms and hail, which usually means chances are good for tornadoes. the morning was really scary, too. it was in the mid-60s and balmy. creepy tornado weather.

thank goodness we didn't have any of that. just the wind...

in my face, the whole freaking way.

this doesn't sound like fun at all.

Those are the races that you’ll be able to tell people about for years to come. So you are da woman! I personally would have stayed at home, safe and sound.

War stories build character.... but please recoup your body. Congrats on finishing.
