Running Up North:
A few things that I have learned while running up in Northern Minnesota this week is that it is a lot better than trying to run on the streets of Shanghai with 20 million other people, cars, scooters, and bikes. Also that there are still drawbacks to getting away from everything, such as horse flies.
However, there is a slight silver lining to this in that I have found out that horse flies without any wind can fly almost exactly at a 7 minute mile pace. This is only really good when you workout calls for a tempo run faster than a 7 min pace, but good to know none the less.
