Danish Proverbs

So, I literally just hit the "publish post" button on my last post and got up to make myself a cup of afternoon tea. The tea bag had the following Danish Proverb, "He who would leap high must take a long run." I was thinking that was very fitting given the fact that I was just talking about running.

And, then, to make it even funnier ... I got back to my desk to receive this e-mail:

The Terriers are a tough pack, but running in “teen” temperatures pose a serious threat to the well being of our athletes. Please bundle up and bring your run inside where you will be safe and warm. See you next week when the temperatures warm.

So, needless to say, I won't be running outside tomorrow. But, I think I'll still stick with the proverb and go for a treadmill run tomorrow. I'm thinking that I'm going to start my half-marathon training tomorrow (eek!), so I'll post my plan for running then.


  1. It is WAY too cold to be running outside! Enjoy the treadmill tomorrow and have a good run. Don't push too hard yet.
