I left my left lung on the mountain.....

Humility is golden. I ran 3.5 miles today at 10,800 feet, hard face wind the ENTIRE way, and not a single cloud in the sky. How is it possible to be so windy without a single cloud? I'm hot, I'm beat, I'm sore, and I nearly lost my cookies half way through the run on the 8% grade hill. I even had Peter Gabriel's Solsbury Hill playing and it did nothing for my stamina. When I passed by the graveyard, I seriously thought about joining them! I was planning on running at least 5 today so I can work my way up to running up the damn mountain instead of down. I am more than a little disappointed in myself today. How in the heck am I supposed to run 26.2 in 3 months if I cannot endure 3.5 today. Crap, crap, and more crap! Ugh!

  1. A) you'll be running at almost sea level
    B) the hardest runs are the ones you feel you can't get through but do anyway - and the most rewarding
    C) I have Solsbury Hill on my iPhone too!
    D) Download Kesha "Animal" CD. great/funny run tunes.
