I've been averaging about 5 miles a day. Some of them have been with T and some have been alone. Sunday was alone and it was in the single digits. Friday it wasn't too cold and was quite pretty out. Here are a few pics from that run. Nice scenery always makes it easier to take!
I love it when the top of the mountain is covered with snow.
This is a very small mountain near my house.
When we get to the town center the sun is beginning
to come out.
It was gorgeous!
After Christmas Monday we got the storm many of you got. We did not get massive amounts of snow but it was a snowy day and we got a decent amount. I cancelled the appointment I had and settled in the rocking chair with coffee, the paper, a cat, a book, the computer. It was great to be relaxed with no place to go. Eventually I did get out for an outstanding run. I love running in a storm! I went so late I even got Emily to come with me! I went about 5 1/2 miles and loved every minute. What a day to be running!

I am seeing a lot of year end goal reviews. I was doing so well until my injury and then abandoned them for obvious reasons. I haven't decided if I will revisit them. I am also luke warm about 2011 goals. I think I will do these but they may be late. My main goal by far is to run smart.
You may not have noticed but I have registered for a race - New Year's Day. My husband and I do this every year. I don't expect to be fast but I am VERY excited about racing in any form again! I will be careful and smart (I hope.)
I am an "older" runner who didn't start running until I was 50. I got hooked on running and racing very quickly. It's been awhile since I ran a marathon but I do several halves a year. The big news is that this is the year of the triathlon!
