3 miles, 44:53 (14:56-120)

Life is funny. You never react to things the way you think you will.

Easy run on the track. Legs trashed from climbing. Who knew? A time to think.

I lived in South Tejas for six years. My only wish was to once experience a hurricane, so I could go out and run in a 100 mph wind. I always wondered what that would feel like. The incredible wall of wind on the way out, followed by human kite on the way back. I waited. And waited. We never even came close to a tropical storm.

And then.

In the first hurricane season since I moved to the desert, they’re going to get slammed. It sounds like it will be really, really bad. I always thought I would be annoyed if a hurricane arrived shortly after I left. But now I’m just scared.

Life is funny.
