The weather continues to be slightly warmer here, though it snowed for most of the day. Not wanting to miss another workout, I headed out for a 2.25 mile loop around my neighborhood. I am not normally a fan of the winter (in fact, I’m sure I’ll be cranky about it tomorrow when I’m walking around campus), but there is something so peaceful about running outside in the snow. Granted, the running is a little more challenging, but we take our time and are very careful to be aware of cars.
I’m learning a lot about winter running this year, and what I need to do to keep my workouts successful in any weather. One thing that helped today was…. I got those shoes I wanted! It was perfect timing, really. I ordered them from L.L. Bean a few weeks ago (I had a couple coupons), but they were back-ordered. Luckily, they arrived just as I was getting ready to go running, and I couldn’t resist wearing them! For the first time, I ran in snow without getting my feet wet. Awesome.
