My shoes are so beat up that the plastic in the heels is exposed..duct tape to the rescue. I am thinking about leaving them under my pillow when I go to school tonight to see if the shoe fairy will leave me some money. I ran in 5 inches of greasy snow today. The roads were not plowed and cars were completely out of control. I had to jump into the snowbanks everytime a vehicle went by to not get hit. I fell 3 times. One fall was epic and I left an 8 foot long smear down the hillside where I slid. I consider faling down a type of cross training. If you run, you fall, so you’d better be good at it. I embrace this bad weather running. These different conditions will give me the confidence and experience that I need to get across the country. Amazing how the same route that took me 1:54 yesterday took me 2:23 today. Real life, real conditions.
