With the wind and thick clouds rolling over head, the drizzle seems to be foreshadowing trouble.
I'm trying hard not to freak out.
The storm front moved in last night, complete with rain, high winds, and lots of dust in the air. Most people probably thought, "Hmm...definitely need to wear a coat tomorrow." Marathon people thought only one thing: "How the hell am I going to run if the weather stays like this?"
I've never trained in the rain. Worse than that, I've never trained in the wind, and if you know Vegas wind, you know what I'm talking about. And the dust? It'll coat my mouth as I breath heavily for 13.1 miles. I'll die of asphyxiation long before I finish the course.
All of this is compiled with the fact I woke up this morning with a sore throat and an overall feeling of aches and pains. Instead of hunkering down in the warmth of our house, I still have a million things on my to-do list, the first of which is The Sage, the JLLV newsletter. Yes, the two events - the marathon and the completion of the this issue - overlapped, and I'm trying to field phone calls, emails, and texts from various people to get this issue off the ground.
Who knows how this is going to turn out...for someone who doesn't "work" (I say that sarcastically), I sure as hell feel busy.
