Me: 1, Winter Blues: 0

Hahahhaha! I made it out again today! Snow, you beautiful but annoyingly slushy and slippery beast, I have defeated you.

My run was not long, nor was it particularly special in any way, BUT: I completed it. I came out of my morning funk and decided to just get on with it and run. Because it's what I love!

I decided not to care if my feet got wet, or if I had to walk at certain times when the snow or ice was abundant.
I even decided not to care if I had to stop, or move to the side, when a car approached. Furthermore, I didn't care that I was practically running at a snail's pace. I was running!

And, during my last stretch, when I decided to take it a little faster, I knew I couldn't maintain it like I could in the fall. But it was nice to attempt a little speedwork.

I am happy.

Maybe March will mean...the end of my self-imposed hibernation?

Hopefully this crap melts away soon....I am itching to buy a new pair of running shoes and get out there consistently!

Happy Sunday, everyone.


  1. Giiiiiiiiiirl, I feel you!!! This has been the longest, coldest, dreariest, snowiest, SUCKIEST WINTER EVER!!! But it's sunny and 50 today, and I just finished up a seven-miler, and I ran it TEN MINUTES AND NINETEEN SECONDS faster than I did when I ran the same distance last fall when training for my first HM. I think I just might have to make a blog post out of this...LOL

  2. That's great! You see, you never know how it'll turn out. Here's to better weather!

  3. I love this blog and I LOVE the title!! Good for you, I ran today too and felt better for it.

  4. Nice job. Way to end the month and start a new one!
