I like a challenge as much as the next runner, but a break would be nice... but not expected. January has been a very tough month. I had the 2nd worst case of the flu I've ever had, followed by the death of my wonderful Grandmother, lots of coughing, and then the snow and ice. But it's times like these when maybe the powers that be are simply asking you 'How badly do you want this?"
The answer is still, as always, 'really really bad'.
But we don't do this because it's easy, we do it because we want to find out just what we as individuals can achieve. And I know this too shall pass and the weather will eventually turn for the better for the better. Such is life. I'm grateful that I'm getting in some miles when I can, and that the sun is out and I'm alive. To have ice in your beard can be a thrilling experience.
