Jogging in a Winter Wonderland


Today I accomplished a first for me–I ran in the snow!   Sure I’ve “run” in the snow before…during snowball fights and back up the hill to take another sled run…but I have never laced up my sneakers and donned my running gear to prepare for a snowy winter run.  It was great! 

A group from my church was planning to meet at the trail at 7:30 a.m. and two of us were crazy enough to show up.  But it was perfect…not only to get out there and feel winter around me, but also to make a new running buddy.  I did not expect to see many others on the trail, but was I ever wrong.  While there were no bike riders to worry about it was almost as crowded as summer time trail running in Northern Virginia (ok, I’m exaggerating) but there surprisingly were quite a few out there braving the elements which really weren’t so bad once you got used to snow blowing in your face and a cold nose.  I appreciated good conversation and the peacefulness in the air that defines a winter wonderland.

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
