Cool and Cold

Ok, first with the cool. The clip above is a pretty impressive free running montage video from one of my fellow Brits.  I love the message behind it, the way it all flows together, and especially the way he gets through that window.

And secondly the cold, namely the Arctic blast that hit Texas a few days ago.  I ventured out for a run with Clea early this morning, and it was brutal - 15F with icy cold winds that numbed our faces and made us wonder what the heck we were doing.

We didn't see any other joggers.  I'm sure motorists thought we were crazy.

The hip is still not right, but it's better than it was.  And after thinking long and hard about it I'm going to head up to Huntsville to pit my wits and my will against the 100 miler anyway.  In a perverse way, it's just another challenge and I know I'd kick myself and regret it if I didn't go.

Because I do love challenges, even though I know that one day they will catch up with me.

Hopefully it won't be this weekend.

Stay warm everyone.
