I’m sitting in the back of the classroom while my co-instructor teaches about hypothermia and frostbite.  He lives in Wyoming.  I took on heat stroke and heat exhaustion this afternoon.  Seemed appropriate.  I’ll definitely toss in a few Texas summer trail running scenarios.  I might even throw in a few Leadville stories for the altitude class later.  Trail running’s on my mind today.  I’ve been running around (and around) the Johns Hopkins campus in the mornings before class.  All the college students are still fast asleep, so it’s just me and the security guards out and about.  It’s a lovely campus with green quads and red brick paths and lots of red brick buildings with white paned windows.  And the light poles are still wrapped in white Christmas lights.  Still, it’s been hard to make myself get up and run.  If Rocky wasn’t coming up, I wouldn’t do it.  I’d just stay in bed.  Yup, I’m officially not a road runner anymore.  Give me trails or give me doughnuts.  Maybe if some of you were around to run with…

We have a day off tomorrow and I can’t wait to get back to my parent’s house in Virginia to play with Asa.

Saturday:

1.  Run 4 hours

2. Play with Boy

3. Back to Baltimore

Here’s a great short submersion hypothermia video for you featuring Dr. Gordon Giesbrecht.  You’ll enjoy it.

    That’s what I thought. If you ever get stuck with spin class…although you “enjoyed” a couple of months of pull running, which I can’t even comprehend, but I hate being in the water. Anyhow, give me some road circle, and I’ll be all over it. I ran around chirch parking lot a morning before Christmas:)
