I just did something awesome.

Oh my gosh, I am amazing.

I just went running at 5:30, IN THE SNOW!!

I mean, while it was LITERALLY snowing!

I’m just so proud of me.

“Who’s the crazy person up this early?”

ME!

“Who would go running in this weather?”

ME!

Yay-hooray!!

You wanna know the positives of running in the snow?

Number 1, it makes everything brighter.  I am so over running in the dark.  It’s hard to see the potholes, plus it’s a tad scary. . .  Awe, who am I kidding, it’s a lot scary.

(I run with pepper-spray clutched in my hand and one eye constantly glancing over my shoulder.)

Number 2, it makes everything feel clean and fresh.  I have been running these same streets for months now.  But today I had tiny flakes falling on my cheeks and snow crunching under my feet, it gave my rather boring run a whole new sensation.

And Number 3, and probably most importantly, IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE A BADASS!!

I just ran in the snow.

How rad is that?

We may not run far, and we may not run fast, but gosh darn it, we run.

Guys, I feel like I’m underselling just how awesome I am.

For a girl who tends to find every excuse she can to stay inside and read a book.  A girl who cries through every commercial that includes a puppy or a baby.  A girl who can’t seem to get a handle on changing her bike tires.  Right now, this girl feels tough as nails!

Woohoo!

    You are awesome 🙂 This reminded me of running in the snow with Josh Alcorn in Florence. It was awful. I was so out of shape, so cold and he was a 1/2 mile ahead of me. I’m glad your snow running experience was much better than my last one. LOVE you my friend!!!!
