Fruits of my Labor

Congratulations to Nia, she is the first OFFICIAL entry into the paint your kettlebell contest. That’s right, you are all being beat by a girl :-). I gotta say Nia gets props for the gold dusting of the name, I’m curious as to how she achieved that effect.

Come one, come all, I’m ready for your entries.

I went for the tire last evening. I wanted four laps, one estimated mile with the tire, no running, just the grind. I was lucky, I had one of those moments you can only ever achieve when you train outside. I began my walk under cloudy skies and cool temps. As I trudged and listened to music I thought about the Strongman contest coming up. I looked around about half way through my first lap and suddenly there were huge snowflakes falling slowly, silently around me. The snow was coming slow so I went on.
By the time the second lap came, the snow was getting heavier but at this point I was enjoying the whole experience too much fun to quit. The snow kept on and I made a path through it with the tire, tiny little glacier that it is. As the snow fell, I also found that my task was getting easier. By the time I was finished, I was hardly straining at all against the the friction.
I happened to have my camera in the car.
