Alive and loving it

Heading out for a winter run. Yes, that is snow on the ground behind me.

30 degrees in the city but the snow hasn’t all melted from the streets

I went out for a lunch time run. Mid-run, I paused to take a photo and accidentally paused my Runkeeper app so it only recorded the first 1.66 miles. But I know what I did! And I feel so proud! I ran about 3 miles on sidewalks and up little hills and finished with 3 loops around the little park across the street. Close to 3 miles running in 30 degree weather feels like quite an accomplishment. later, I will post the photos I snapped of ice blocks still hanging out on the sidewalk and ice puddles blocking my path. For now, I am just reveling in this feeling – like an athlete, like a person who can do anything.

here’s hoping you do something today that makes you feel “ALIVE AND LOVING IT” too.

    Glad you’re keeping up with this! My “alive and loving it” activity today was cleaning house 😉 Don’t laugh… it’s great therapy.

      No laughter. I clean when I am thinking about stuff, too. That and running are my sure-fire therapeutic moves. So if I have a “situation”, I clean the apt and go for a run so when I come back, the adrenaline is pumping and I have a nice, clean space to chill out in.
