I am a whimp

This post is to out myself as a wannabe runner, a whimp and a looser.

Following last weeks amazing weather, I collapsed mentally when we suddenly got over 6 inches of fresh snow on Wednesday. I did not run that day. Yesterday, I ran 14km in the slush wearing my trail shoes even though I ran in the city. It wasn't horrible, but it sure wasn't great. Today, it's sunny but below freezing with some wind. I tried to go out but I could not do it. I went outside and came back in, swearing like a sailor.

I'm exposed as the fraud that I am. Fair weather runner.

The worst thing is, I don't have any booze in the house and I don't want to go out. 'Cause it's focking freezing. The humanity...

oh boy, if you're a wannabe there is no hope for me!!

everyone feels this way when spring is *about* to hit and you're tired of winter... don't worry. the days are getting longer and warmer, and before long you'll be dying to get back out there. :)

Even though I mocked you on AP I got to tell you getting out the last 3 day has probably been harder then anytime this winter. I think if I had not been required to take my clinic out on wednesday I would have wimped out.

And for crap sake stock up on booze so this kind of thing doesnt happen again
