Winter Running

I don’t like cold.  That being said, I like running outside.  Now that I’ve started running again – after a 5 month lovely hiatus that involved a very sexy boot for my broken foot – I wanted to get outside ASAP.  In winter.

Still, it’s far better than the treadmill which I’ve always felt hopelessly incompetent on.   I’d rather fall flat on my ass outside on the ice than pretend I’m a gazelle on a treadmill.IMG_1953 IMG_1908

 

So I’m braving the great outdoors!!!  YAY ME!!!!  I’m up to 4 miles and I’m keeping it around a 9:30 minute mile pace.  Build the distance, the speed will come.  Patience is not my virtue, but I’m so happy to be running again, to be outside again.
