Most Winters, I am able to put on my heaviest running toga, lace up my running shoes, and hit the road to get a little mileage under my belt before Spring arrives.
This year, however, I have not run at all. It’s been too cold, too snowy, and I simply haven’t had the desire to wake up at the butt crack of dawn to get in any exercise.
Besides, where in the world would I run? There is snow everywhere!
I have definitely packed on some Winter weight, and I am not happy with how I look or feel. I’ve told myself I’m going to get out there and start dating again, but there’s no way I can do that when I’m not confident in my looks.
I would’ve thought that all the shoveling I’ve done would have me in excellent shape, but I guess I’ve enjoyed too many comfort foods to help me survive a cruel, lonely Winter.
So I know that running is the key to my moving forward towards a happier life. Because that’s the case, the activity has certainly been on my mind lately. I’ve been checking the weather reports, and it looks like we might finally get a break from his hellish Winter existence soon.
With that in mind, I took the first step in my 2015 Running Program today…
I downloaded a stopwatch app onto my new phone.
Sure, that might seem like nothing to you, but to me, it’s a sign that I’m serious about becoming the running addict I’ve been in the past.
So, be on the lookout for a multitude of running posts soon. The best way to get over this Winter is to run from it.
Anyone want to be my running partner? Who else is looking forward to leaving Winter in the dust and getting back out on the road? Has anyone tried to run outside in this weather?
