What a wonderful weekend it was! Friends, food, laughter, love.
Here in Cranbrook, we have been having crazy weather (yes, I’m onto the weather already in this post). At the beginning of last week, it was -25 C and by the end of the week, it was +6 C! What is going on? The beautiful snow that we got last week is gone . . . melted away to muck and ice. Not nice. Hopefully it straitens itself out soon.
The reason I am talking about the weather, is that even though it is crazy right now, I got in an outside run . . . in January! It was fabulous. . . hard, but great. It is so much different running outside than on the treadmill. It just feels better. Fresh air, sunshine, mud, ice. I went out for about 25 minute run and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I even stopped in at my parents to say a quick hello . . . but really I just needed a break! The sun was out and shining beautifully . . . almost bright enough to disguise the muck and mud.
I love being outfitted in outdoor running gear. I love the layers, I love the gloves and I love that I stay warm the whole time! Sometimes when we’re out cross country skiing I get a little bit cold. I definitely don’t have that problem when I’m running! Sweat, sweat, sweat!
It’s back to the treadmill tomorrow morning! It will be Monday already?
Here are a couple of pictures I took while on the treadmill in the last couple of weeks.
