Upgrade

You might remember how I chickened out on my run the other day when the weather was bad.  Well, yesterday I decided to redeem my not hard-core self and go run in the cold.  It was 16 degrees and windy when I left.  I was dressed to run in the cold, but, wow, it was cold.

As I started out, my first thought was, "Man, I am so hard core!"  After about 1 mile, my thought was "I am totally crazy...why am I doing this?  It is so cold out here!"  I could not feel my toes at all, and despite my work, I was not warming up.  As I took the early turn to head home, I tried not feel too badly.  Finally, after about 1.5 miles, I started warming up a little...of course, by that time I was almost home.

I ended up with just 2 miles, and, believe me when I say, it was not pretty.  It might go down as 2 of my worst miles ever.  But maybe, just maybe, I have upgraded to almost, but not quite, hard core.
