This morning, I laced up my running shoes and went for a 2-mile run around hilly Southern Utah University. It's 50 degrees this morning with a stiff cold wind coming out of the mountains. I've also jumped from an altitude of 149 feet in Texas to an altitude of 5895 feet in Utah. When you add the hills and the wind and the altitude together, it makes for a very different running experience than I've been accustomed to in Dallas.
Never-the-less, I popped in my ear buds (Kanye, Robyn, Gaga and Pink on the iPod) and braved the elements. It felt so good to run the same route that I was walking last summer. What usually took me 40 minutes to walk, I ran in 25 minutes today! My goal is to run that two mile loop 5 days a week while I'm here.
Tomorrow, I'll be posting some more questions from readers
for the Q&A series, so be sure to check back!
