Today was a beautiful day.  The sun was out and the temperature was in the upper 70’s.  I was excited for my run tonight.  I thought, it would be ideal weather.  I was wrong.  As soon as I got outside, I noticed the wind and could see sand and dust blowing. 

I took my hat off and attached it to my fanny pack.  I have run in this kind of weather before, but the last few times it was during the day. It was easier when I wore  sunglasses to protect my eyes.  Not tonight, I could feel the sand hitting my face and eyes.  

After about a mile in, the wind calmed down and I decided to push on to do 4 miles rather than 3.  Right after the halfway point, I noticed two guys out running far ahead.  I decided to make a game out of and see if I could catch them.  I came close and I got within a few tenths of a mile, but near the end of the run, they turned right while I turned left to go home.  

There is always next time.
