So, who's up for a run as long as you can race? Happening in my neighborhood. The Wings for life world run, a charity event to run for those who can't.

From the web page: "100% of the proceeds from the event will go to the Wings for Life foundation, which funds research into curing spinal cord injury. The run will unite athletes around the world, in one race running for those who can’t!"

So, I'm thinking: might be I nice start of next year's season. And if my running can make someone elses life better, well there's a nice catch to that. Anyone else in? If you can't come to my neighborhood, maybe somewhere else in the world? There are 35 locations to sign up for and we all run at the same time :)

In my last post I told you I was waiting for snow, and you know what. I'm still waiting although we had a blizzard for one day, but that snow cleared away quite quickly. Did a 10+ mile run in the blizzard. Wasn't mean't to go IN the blizzard but it arrived so quickly that I ended up right in the middle of it. No worries though as I was running in civilized areas. Since, the temperature has dropped to 26 F and been like that for a week with a freezing wind (as I live on an island it's always windy). So I have had to adjust my gear for colder temperatures.

It's a great feeling to get out for a run independent of the weather (as long as you are prepared and don't go out beeing stuborn and stupid, mother nature can be harsh...). After the blizzard run I felt stronger.

That's all for now
