  1. After today's run, I only have forty-six miles to go for the year to make 1,000. Barring injury, that should be pretty easy, but it gives me some motivation for the coming winter mornings.

    great Red Barn Lane 7.06 mi 01:09 09:42 pace

    I really had a hard time getting out the door on this one, but it turned out to be a great run. The wind, which looked menacing from the window, wasn't so bad. I took one of my lesser-used r... read more

    good Snowy and Slick 5.05 mi 00:51 10:02 pace

    Took it really slow today to avoid falling on the hard-packed snow. Thankfully, when I got out into the gravel roads, out of the trees, I was able to find a little better footing. As far as my br... read more

      Diesel fumes are thick here, too. Way to go getting out of the cocoon and into your winter gear, Nicole! That's a great victory that makes your pretty miles look even better.

    great Short and Sweet 3.01 mi 00:27 09:05 pace

    Forgot to post my run this morning! Monday's are my busy day, so it's a challenge to fit a run in. Very cold, but felt great.

    We're still experiencing an Arctic blast up here, but the cold weather gear is doing the trick. This was just a quick jaunt to warm up the blood on this very cold day. Felt great!

      Sounds great, ladies. My PT told me today he want me to walk instead on the hills and just jog the other stretches. I didn't tell him I was planning 8 tomorrow. I can recover later; let's do it!

      Glad your gear is paying it way. I sort of miss the whole culture of cold weather running. I remember going out looking like a kindergartener that dressed herself. My daughter's purple sparkle gloves being the best part of my look, I think.

      How do you do crow without getting sore pressure points where the arm and leg connect? I can do the first half, but then it just doesn't feel right from there. :)

      It doesn't seem to hurt in those spots. My wrists get a little sore. I think the key is leaning further forward which is kind of scary because it feels like I might fall on my head.

      Boy, this could've been me this morning exactly! See post. So hard to stay motivated these dark cold mornings. Listened to my brother's talk again on Fighting Through Fitness' vimeo page. that did it.
      Plus, you know I always, always, always run with pepper spray and a mobile phone.
