65 Degrees.. Could spring be here?

Me in my Winter running gear!

Me in my Winter running gear! Not from this year!

Ok, so it was 65 degrees yesterday.  That’s right, 30’s last week – 65 yesterday.

Could it be that spring is peaking its head up?   Could this evil winter finally be moving on out?  Is it that running season is finally here?

Now yes, I know – we can run all through the winter.  (To show my understanding, I have even included a picture of me from years-gone-by  – wearing a fashionable winter running outfit!)
It’s just that THIS year, I didn’t.  I had severe motivational problems.  The snow and dark, just didn’t yell “GO RUN!” to me, so I didn’t.   Now the warm weather and sunshine that is in abundance after work? THAT tells me to go run, and so I did!

Having taken the winter off, I wanted to take it easy.  But with it being gorgeous out – I wanted to run long.  I compromised and did 5 miles, but slowly. I’m sure this is why I am just sore (VERY sore) today, and not in absolute agony!  The first couple of miles, my breathing didn’t want to fall in to where it should be.  I suppose my body had forgotten over the several non-running months.  The uprisings part, is that my breathing started behaving around mile 2!  I figured on a couple of air-less runs before my body remembered!

My body gets to heal a little today, and then up in the AM with the boy and running!  Not too many days left until the Cherry Blossom Festival!


I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
