Today’s run was inspired by the need for a longer haul – my next half marathon is less than 5 weeks away!
January 16 – Day 16/31
Location: Mud Island and Main Street
Weather Notes: 57 and windy (enough for an advisory!)
Distance: 7 miles
Other Notes: I realized the power of having a partner this morning. Had Russ not been there, the wind absolutely would have beaten my spirit. Our pace running with the wind was 7:45 and against it 9:13! I would have gotten in the car for fear of being blown away but because Russ was there, we finished what we had set out to do – and even added in the bridge as a final challenge!
And in the spirit of this holiday, whether you are working or not, here is a quote from the great Martin Luther King, Jr. I am so privileged to live in a city with such history.
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
