My electric blanket, hot coffee on a cold drive, hooded sweatshirts and cable knit socks...
|Okay, I look weird in this picture, but the kitty's cuteness outweighs my vanity. I suppose.|
Kitties that fall asleep in your arms, the way my husband smells and yes even running.
Tonight was my first post marathon run. I gave it some time and in those eight days... I think I sort of forgot what I was missing. As a treat to myself for getting out there in the dark and the wind, I ran my favorite five mile loop. Yes, I drove to my old neighborhood just to run this loop because I know every crack, curb and climb on this route. Running it gave me comfort.
Stats were 5.0 miles in a flat 49 minutes.
I feel like tonight started a new chapter in my running. I have proven that I can do most anything on these two feet, maybe next season I should focus on doing it faster and stronger.
What gives you comfort?
What are your goals for winter training and the next running season?
