Oh c’mon, weren’t blogs designed to let people show off nifty titles?
This weekend officially signified my first training run for the marathon! I did a nice 8 miles around town on Saturday, even getting in a little distance by the water. All of the snow from the past week, however, was actively melting in the unseasonably warm weather. Awesome because I literally ran in shorts, but not so awesome having my feet soaked through by the time I got home. To me having only my feet wet was way more uncomfortable than runs I have done in a full blown rain when my whole body would be soaked through.
But in the end, a small price to pay to be back outside. I had been doing some runs on the treadmill recently given the weather, and more notably the lack of running space on sidewalks and the road, and I was starting to get a little stir crazy. It makes me wonder how things will go mid winter as I’m sure Mother Nature won’t modify her schedule to accommodate my long runs. Unless I just end up being that lucky!
Heading into the holiday feeling great and looking forward to a few days away from work. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
