A recent trip to the beach found me running into a pretty strong headwind.  So strong, that my visor blew off my head.  Three times.

In ten years of running, I’m not sure that’s ever happened.

I kept going knowing that upon return, the wind would be coaxing me along, at my back.

There is no denying that running with the wind, rather than against it, is easier.

But we can’t control the wind.

Or its speed.

Or direction.

So the question becomes: Are we prepared to meet it, no matter?
