On my annual two week storm chase in the Great Plains! We are in Goodland, Kansas and I finally had time to go for a run. I went to the car to get my shoes and the wind was so cold that I could barely walk in it. The weather service said there was a wind chill of 28. Brrrr. This Florida girl was not feeling that. So I went for a quick run on the Holiday Inn treadmill followed by a little strength training.

As far as chasing is concerned, there were minimal chances for some good stuff yesterday and nothing really came of it.  But we cored one cell and got hailed pretty hard. It was enough to keep us content until the next good chase day which is probably Monday. The Storm Prediction Center is already using the t word, but I don't want to get my hopes up.  I think we are headed to Colorado for the weekend.

2x1 mile repeats- 6:30 and 6:28.  Not too shabby for this out-of-shape girl!
