What a wild and crazy running day. My run started at @ 10:am with partly cloudy skies and the sun peaking thru every once or twice. It was 55 degrees and there was a dribbley bit of rain coming down. Then it continually got worse and colder. Lets see it got really windy, it rained harder, it even snowed and I got clobered by some hail. Dam that was fun.........63 days till Boston....Getter' Done!!!!!
