I am a runner and I live in Windy, Arizona. I expect wind in the spring, but wind in November? Come on. This morning we ran 10.05 miles in 45+ mph wind. Our key to survival on this cold and windy morning was to run with the wind. We made it well out of the city limits and well onto the reservation. Dagerous? Yes. Necessary? Yes. It was worth the risk to have the wind pushing us along. Maybe that explains why we ran an 8:20 mile.
Yes, this picture looks nice and peaceful. I struggled to take this pic on my phone as we ran along in our tights, sweaters, hats, and gloves. Welcome to winter running folks.
