I have been awful about updating this blog. I really hope I can do better. Today, I am inspired to write because I had a great run. What made it so great? The weather. Yes, snow was falling from the sky, temps were a balmy 20 degrees (warm compared to earlier this week), there was at least 4 inches of freshly fallen snow, and no wind. Some people may not venture out in this, but I loved it. I have been fighting a cold all week and took a few days off from running. But I was itching to get out. It was great! I loved every moment, even the constant dog-sniff/pee-break stops. For me, running in a winter wonderland is exhilarating, refreshing, and peaceful.
