I Did It!

I went out and did something that I thought I would never do.

I went out and ran in the f-f-freezing cold.  I hate the cold!  It was 44 degrees (which may as well be 30 below in my book), but I went out and did it and it felt great.  The headband and jacket made all the difference.  I tried to do a run last week without them and I only lasted about a half mile before I turned around and ran for my cozy warm home.  Last week I went shopping at Target to get some warm running gear and was surprised to find a cute headband in the fitness dept.  I was expecting to just buy a lame black one.  Bonus points to Target! Plus it matches my shirt and ipod armband.  Not that that really matters, but like I told Justin, I run better when I look cute – it’s a mental thing.  So now that I have over overcome my issue with running in the cold weather maybe I can overcome my issue with shopping at Costco on a Saturday.  Er maybe not. . . .

    Good job! I am not a fan of running or cold. Last thanksgiving Randy ran in a 10k and it was 4 degrees. No thanks!

    This is precisely why I moved to a warm location…. But now seventy feels like 35…. Sigh, but cute well made running gear does make all the difference

    Way to go!! Getting out the door is the first and hardest step. It always takes me a mile or so to warm up. If you ever want to run together I am here for you!

      Oh thanks Jess! I’ll give you a call next year when I’m faster. Right now you’d be doing laps around me. 🙂
