It was cold (29 degrees).
It was windy (24 miles/hour).
It was pretty long (1:45, about 10.5 miles).
When I finished, it was dark (5:15pm) and the left side of my face (which faced the west and the wind) felt like I has a stroke.
And yes, that meant I was also drooling on myself.
I shivered the whole drive home from the lakefront, even with the heat on skin-melting-High.
But I was also one of only a few runners tackling the path today.
As Danielle said, I definitely felt like a badass.
