Marathon Maniac #957
Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

Running has given me the courage to start, the determination to keep trying, and the childlike spirit to have fun along the way - Run often and run long, but never outrun your Joy of running!

Good morning Boomers. I was one of those "crazed Packer fans" freezing at the game last night. Nearly 4 hours in -4F with wind chills near 25 below. It's a lot easier to sit in weather like that when your team wins, believe me. Stayed relatively warm, but felt like Ralphie's little brother in "The Christmas Story" because I had so many clothes on. Alas, the Frozen Tundra was not a happy place last night. The Giants really played well. Still below zero this morning (with 4-7 inches of snow predicted for today - could winter get much better?) so opted for 5 miles on the treadmill this morning. Got home late, got up early, no sproink today. No sproink, no win, sigh...life goes on.
(PS to sports fans, you can find some great stuff on Netflix. We have watched game 6 of the '75 World Series, and Kerry Wood's 20-strikeout game. That was the best.)
