Windy Day

I attempted to run 10K on the 10th today.  The wind was blowing so hard, I lost my hat at one point, and then had to hold it the rest of the time.  So I managed to run 5.4 miles.  

I got to watch as a cloud came over a mountain, and then I could see that some sort of precip was coming out of the cloud.  Sure enough, within minutes it was SNOWING on me.  SNOWING.  
May 10 + Snow = Colorado.  

Now I am limping along with incredible pain that I think is from my sciatic nerve.  It runs all the way from my left hip to my left ankle.  And it hurts worse when I sit down.  

Sorry to be such a complainer.   The former chaplain where I work used to talk to me about  "the therapeutic value of kvetching."  Not sure anyone wants to read about it.  

Still haven't heard whether I have next Sunday free to run the Colfax half marathon.

Snow in May, wow.

It is supposed to be around 45 here tonight in Tenn. Everyone's getting the winter gear back out.
