why i love nebraska!

The above pic is from Saturday where temps were in the single digits and high winds. I did a tempo run, and thought that it was pretty significant, so I took pic's of myself. Little did I know that I was going to be one-upped by myself the following day.

These two pictures are from my long run on Sunday. 16 miles, just under 2 hours, below zero temps, snow, wind, and oh yes: a 2 inch icicle(sp?) hanging from my beard. It is not fake folks. In fact, It was so frozen to my beard that I couldn't get it off for ten minutes or so after the run.

Anyways, This is just one of the reasons that Nebraska is the best state in the union.
