This picture is actually from Sunday's run - another
great run with T!
Monday morning I had an appointment so I took full advantage of a varied schedule. I planned the extra time right to the minute. I got up and did my stretches and as it began to get light I headed out. It might have made more sense to run and then stretch but I was avoiding the dark as much as possible.
This is the closest I have gotten to running
in the dark!
It was the coldest I have run in yet this year - 13 degrees but I dressed for it so it was fine. I stayed on the back road (you probably think all the roads I run on are back roads but some are more "back road" than others.) The road I ran on is dirt and not a major route out of town. I had to do a little doubling back to get my four miles in. There was a decent amount of snow so I wore the Yak Trax and enjoyed the beauty of the morning. When I got home I ate, changed my shirt and headed to the doctors. After my appointment I headed back home to shower before heading to work. Hmmm shouldn't I have showered before the doctors? No time. This is the only way I could get my run in so my apologies to the doctor. Then the rest of the day I felt great. I felt energized from the early workout and I also felt glad that I was done with my workout! I could get some needed things done after work and get home and actually cook some dinner! (Somebody laughed at me - in a nice way of course - for calling it supper so I have upgraded my vocab.!)
Now onto the first drawing for my giveaway! The numbers were chosen using random.ajh
