Running in the Snow

Running in the rain ... that can be fun if the temperature isn't hovering just above freezing. Running in the snow ... that is neat, magical, relaxing even. Oh, it was just exhilerating ... especially on New Year's Eve ... the last run of the year ... what a special gift from Above!!!

The temperature was at a nice 36ish degrees and it wasn't a wet snow ... it was a dry big flaked snow that started slowly and then came down faster and faster until it was all around me. But the ground was warm enough that it wasn't sticking so I didn't have to worry about falling because of it.

Oh ... and my pace ... averaged out over 5 miles ... was 12:15/mi. I know to some that would still be considered snails pace, but that's booking it for me.

I felt so uplifted after today's run!

On the Pain Front ... my left hip has been giving me some problems. Not bad, just enough to know that it is there.

Pace is irrelant! That's what I keep telling myself, anyway...

Your pace and mine are about the same, though I might be a tad slower some days when I'm trying to keep my heart rate down.

Don't worry about it... You're out there doing what you love!
