I have lost my mind.
35mph winds with gusts to 50+ but my long run was scheduled for today, so I had to get it done.

If I was going to run outside and deal with Mother Nature's attitude problem I was at least going to use what I could of it to my advantage.

It was a great run!!
Couple big hills to climb, that I really need to run more often to get my hill work in. Some cross winds that I was able to keep a good pace through (thanks to curvy roads, that didn't last long) and a Manic Mommies podcast about setting goals and achieving them, I didn't even really think much about the wind.
I did start to think about my aching right knee. Time to start some icing. I'm really hoping its just getting used to the new shoes and that I wont have to switch out of them because they don't have enough support. It does make me really happy I didn't drop $180 on the Newtons I really thought I wanted.
