Trail Zealot

Colorado hiking, Appalachian Trail thru-hiking, and more...

Agonized all day about whether or not to run in the wind. Writing that makes me feel like a weenie. But it is the truth. The wind makes it very hard to keep intensity steady. And on a cold, sunny day, I imagined I would constantly be too hot or too cold or both somehow. And also...high winds make it impossible to accurately track intensity with the current implementation of my data analysis tools ;)
Definitely not feeling the same snap in my legs that I had been. For a while, it felt hard not to go fast...but felt a little more effortless today.
