For those of you who read food blogs, you will often see a “What I Ate Wednesday” post. Same idea here, except it will be what I saw when I ran on Wednesdays. So take a peek at what my orbs observed and then add your own experience!
I am not sure if I am crazy or lucky with these storms and running. Strike that, I KNOW I am lucky in terms of Sandy and so far with Athena (as Melissa asked “since when are we naming winter storms??”) in the big picture – we have our home, electricity, no loss of belongings, etc. But I have also been lucky in terms of the timing with my runs. The worst of Sandy was a Monday, always a rest day for me and I was able to get in my Sunday and Tuesday around her monsterness. Today I thought for sure I might have to bag my outdoor run and give in to the lure of the warm, dry dreadmill but then Athena, in her infinite wisdom, decided to let those beautiful snowflakes fly! The prospect of a windy, cold, rainy run suddenly morphed into a windy, cold, snowy run and I used my infinite wisdom to declare “game on!”. During a late lunch break, I managed to squeak in 4 miles around the Tuckahoe Wildlife Management Area without getting too cold or too wet – or at least not so much as to care considering the beautiful landscape I ran through! Here is what I saw on this odd November day:
Did Athena ruin your running plans today?
What did you see on your run?
PS I know the seasons are not technically proper nouns, but I think of them as their own little people, so they get capitalized on this blog!
