Today I ran a short two miler from my parents’ house. The wind in this part of Illinois is no joke. I know Chicago is the “Windy City” but this city downstate must come in a close second. My husband and I ran to the trail, which was a half mile straight into the wind. Slow and steady was the only option. The trail did a great job blocking the wind and the return trip had the wind at our backs. I’m still feeling a little sluggish but my youngest had a hard time sleeping last night so who knows if it is from that or the illness from earlier this week. Either way, I’m ready to feel back to normal. Another run is in the books though and on Saturday, I get to celebrate two full years of my streak. I am pretty pumped about that milestone!
