Running 1:00:00  6.0 mi (10:00 / mi) +1000ft 8:38 / mi
shoes: Salomon Sonic Pro_Teal
i woke up early this morning. i had plenty of time to check the weather, check it again, wait for yet another METAR, and then go for a run, come back, check the next METAR, and think about every long and hard.
my run was great - fast, hard, with a lot of emotion. best run i have had in weeks. fast up, and a fast down.
my neighbors, the dowe's, wished me luck.
i headed up to wings of wyoming around 9am, despite atrocious winds forecasted. we decided to proceed with the check ride. all in all, a pretty decent outing....the winds aloft were actually much more mellow than those nearer the ground. however, nearer the ground - wow. i am pretty sure that i am done with 40 knot winds for a very long time.
passed. earned my pilot's license. a day with a lot of emotions, to be sure. grateful to my flight instructor, rodney, and to the flight school owner, don, for all they have taught me, and for all their encouragement.
