12 miles on a cold, sunny day.

For this morning's long run adventure, I ran along the old highway from Inkom to McCammon, from our house to the Subway, which is just about 12 miles (11.8, to be exact).  I waited to leave until around 9:30 so that I would get there around lunch time, then called my husband when I had finished my run and had arrived at Subway and he came and joined me for lunch, then he drove me home.  It was a beautiful and peaceful run, with the sun shining and the temperature hovering around 35 degrees.  The only thing that would have made it more enjoyable would have been if the wind wasn't blowing about 20 miles an hour.  Facing a head wind the whole way was really starting to agitate me by the end.  I could barely hear my music because of the non-stop howling in my ears.  I really guess I shouldn't complain too much though.  It's mid-January in Southeastern Idaho and I've still been able to do some of my runs outside without too much pain and suffering - I should be grateful for that.  This winter has been much more mild than last year.  I remember how hard it was training for a spring marathon through the winter.  I just love getting my vitamin D!

  1. Yeah, we switched running methods this year, I'm on the treadmill and your outside. What's up with that? I need to hunker down and go outside. Except I'm going to wait until the single digit mornings pass...
