Running in the Cold

I have been maintain my running by running a couple of times a week and did a turkey trot out in Tacoma over Thanksgiving. However, I haven't gone much over 4.5 miles in the past few months. It is time to get in some longer runs and work off this extra weight I have put on since the end of September.

Today, I got up, had a cup of coffee, my lovely wife made me a egg sandwich for breakfast and then it was out the door. It was about 40 and overcast this morning with just enough wind to make it feel colder. It felt really good to work up and good sweat and get in 6.5 miles. I was a little slower than I wanted. I had hoped to do it in about 55 minutes. However, I am not going to complain about 59:33. I know now where to I am and where I need to go.

Finishing 6.5 miles in under an hour isn't slow in my book!
I love your banner! You did it! Very cool.

Great job with the run! Knowing where you are and having a plan to get where you want is always a good thing. Did you enjoy the snow today??


Also I take it your wife is a redhead? :)
