Snowy run

Today I am working from home for my last day before holiday’s. I am happy to be home because all of my family has arrived for Christmas and I want to spend time as much time with them as I can.

Even though I could sleep in a bit that of course didn’t happen. So, when I woke up and looked out the window I saw I winter wonderland. The snow that had started to fall when we were headed to the airport last night and it was still falling this morning. That was a surprise to see because that isn’t typical Victoria weather.

I hadn’t run yesterday so I knew that I needed to run today. Even though there was a good amount of snow down I was looking forward to running outside. I needed to just have some me time and also to run.

I left a little after 7:00am and wasn’t sure how long I would be. As I started out I was feeling good. My legs felt fresh and ready to go. I was happy to feel that way. My songs were also good and they motivated me to move.

I decided that I would run around Langford Lake because I hadn’t run there for a few weeks. I

would also then make my route longer and go to the bank on my way home. That way I could kill two birds with one stone.

The morning was beautiful. There was snow falling and it was a mixed with rain. The sky seemed brighter and I think it was because of the snow on the ground.

My feet stayed dry until about the 9km mark. I wasn’t running in a lot of slush for the first part of my run which was great but then as I got closer to where more traffic had been the side of the road was more slushy. I didn’t try to keep my feet dry and just ran. It was what it was.

When I arrived home I felt great and had run 14km. I was happy for the run and ready to start the day with my family.

How did your Friday start?
