Foggy Run

The city was wrapped in a deep fog this morning when I headed out to run with our TNT team. The fog was so thick rolling in from the coast over 40 miles away that you could taste the kelp and the sea foam and the ocean. Traffic lights over deserted streets glowed red for long distances and the chill seeped into my bones and didn't come out for an hour or two after I got home.

Still, the thing that stays with me after every workout with this team is the inspiration. Watching people work hard for a goal, hearing their stories of why they're training or why they want to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, it always warms my heart to the very core. Even on a day wrapped in fog.

Beautiful pictures - and a great post. I've said it before - but your TNT folks are very fortunate to have you as their trainer.

How beautiful!

Its a funny thing about training in winter, while sensible folks are wrapped up all toasty and warm in their front rooms. They miss all of this desolate splendour - and the solitude that comes with pushing yourself out the door in less than perfect conditions.

Great pics too. :)
