February running

Not much going on here. Just plugging along. Winter running is hard. It sucks the motivation out of you.Enough complaining. February? It's looked a lot like the last two weeks before that and the two weeks before that. I seem to be stuck on about 50 miles. I was half complaining to Lindsey about it the other day.
