A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

It's coming...

Sunday, January 1, 2012

I knew it was bound to happen. We've been so lucky to make it through the winter with such little snow thus far. But the wind and snow that is currently beating against my front door is a solid reminder that I am NOT excited about the white stuff looming in the not so distant future. 

Let me clarify: I am not a winter person. I'm always cold, so this season does little to help with that. I don't like ice. I don't like snow. I don't like walking or driving in the ice and snow. I don't like bundling up to walk to the mailbox. 

I despise shoveling. 

There is exactly one winter outdoor activity I DO enjoy, and that would be cross country skiing. But that alone is not enough to make me like this season. 

I was supposed to run five miles today, but after the eight miles yesterday and suuuuuper high heels last night, I think my legs needed the day off. Unfortunately, the forecast is calling for 5 to 10 inches of snow over the next day or so. So, unless I can beat the nastiness tomorrow morning, I'm going to have to figure out what to do for the next several weeks of running. It will certainly make training interesting! 

Although I'm not really one to make New Year's Resolutions, I have decided that I want to try new things. 2012 is already shaping up to be a fantastic year, and anything I can do to add to that is a good thing in my book. So, on the agenda, the half marathon, some fun travel opportunities, weddings, new babies, and a whole lot more. Bring it. :)

  1. I'm just checking to see what your plan is :))) You can do it, even if it has to be the dreadmill. I'm so excited for you and your Princess race! You've made it most of the way through your training so hang in there & your race will be underway before you know it. If you want to dream, dream about crossing the finish line & getting that 1/2 marathon medal!
