Happy Friday everyone! This morning we woke up to an inch or so of snow. The city of Chicago actually got quite a few more, but everything is covered in a thin layer of white around here. However, it’s still not enough snow for my daughter to build a snowman!
I’m so excited for another long weekend. The hubs and I have a date night this weekend and are going to here for dinner. Yeah for yummy food and a toddler free dinner!! The plan is to also catch a movie. There is so much out there but so many of the movies are so long. Does anyone else have a hard time sitting through 2 1/2 hour films?
Anyways, it’s looking more and more like I’ll be putting away the running tights until February or March with the cold weather here to stay. Such a bummer, but I am still enjoying my morning runs on my treadmill.
Running was something that I began doing in my early 20’s as a means of stress reduction. I’ll admit, that my relationship with running is a love/hate one, sometimes there are mornings when the last thing I want to do is lace up my shoes and get on my treadmill. Especially in these cold winter months!
I usually say to myself, ” just run a little bit and you’ll feel better. ” So, I start out and by the time the first song has ended, I’m in the zone. What’s funny is that it doesn’t matter how I feel before or during my run. It’s how I feel at the end of the run that keeps me going for the rest of the day and into the evening. I always tell people that running is for the uncoordinated and non-athletic because truthfully I have never consider myself to be an athlete.

Most importantly, I run because I CAN.
Question: Do you run? What keeps you going especially in these cold winter months?
