I'd cut my leg off to run!

I got to run in the rain today. It was overcast, around 60 degrees and windy. Who knew the weather could be like that here in Arizona. I liked it.

And you can tell by my splits. I decided to keep near home, just incase the heavens opened up. Right around the 2 mile mark it started to drizzle. Didn't last long, so I kept on running. Legs felt great, hip felt great. 6 miles done in almost an hour.
I'd Cut My Leg Off to Run


Yeah, you've heard that before. But, here's a guy that meant it.

Darn nice run Pat! You must be feeling it!

Did you see the article about that guy when it came out in Runner's World a couple of months ago? I was completely amazed what a person would do for the love of his sport! He has a very supportive family.

Good running, Pat!

That guy is amazing, and I think many of us would do the same if in his shoes. This is horrible of me, but on a day when I have bad shin splints, I think "If I had prosthetics, my shins would never hurt!"

Wow. What a decision.

I'm way behind in my Runner's World reading. I just read the article about him from the October issue this weekend. Some of it was a little tough to read, especially the details about the accident and the surgery. The recovery was more difficult than he expected. What a difficult decision that had to be.

That is quite the peepy run.
I read that article a few months back. Tough decision.
