Northern Illinois for me, but I race a lot (or at least used to) in central Illinois. Maybe I know you?

The closest I ever got to running in a tornado was one unseasonably warm and stormy Tuesday in February 2017. I was about 5 miles into my normal 10-mile run and way out in the country when the tornado sirens went off. I started hammering for home, but I was easily 5 miles away with not much shelter around me. Slowly, I realized what was happening. It was 10 AM. It was first Tuesday of the month. I was hearing the normal monthly tornado siren test, bu it was still scary for about 30 seconds.

I've experienced the 30-degree drop, the hail, bitter cold, blizzards, heat. You name it, I've probably run in it. The thing I hate more than anything though is wind! I'm sure you can relate.
