Last night’s wind storm was pretty nasty, but luckily we never lost power, although just down the road on Tiffany when I ran by the generators were cranking at a lot of the houses.
Today’s run sucked, but I finished, so there is that. It was one of those you get out the door the wind seemed to be blowing steady at 20 mph with some really interesting gusts always in your face – no matter what direction you were running.

Comments: Let’s just say the run sucked and move on.
Shoes Worn: New Balance Beacon 2 (218.4). It has been a while since I wore the B2’s and I had forgotten how firm they are, great shoes, but firmer than you expect. The outsole tread is fairly worn now and when I hit some wet spots on the tar it got a little interesting, but on the slimy spots on the dirt road it was not interesting or fun.
I can see these being saved for dry weather and longer treadmill runs, they are just about past their daily trainer status for me at this point.
How did this run move me towards my goal(s)? I ran.
