Longing for Warm Days


The one bright side to the cold winter is that it is just beginning to stay lighter outside for longer…and by longer I mean that at 5:30 pm the sun still has not set.  But yes a 20-something degree day today did not make me happy.  I did not get my run in because a.) it’s too cold and b.) I am still getting over a little bit of sickness.  Perhaps tomorrow it will happen.  Training days become so much tougher to do when you have to be bundled up and deal with the chills.  Even making it to the gym takes extra effort.

So today I don’t have much to say except for I am over winter, this year especially which is one of the coldest I can remember in a long time.  With little snow this year, unlike last year’s snowpocalypse, it is hard to justify wanting to set foot outside in the cold weather.  Another month or two and I know that spring will be back in full bloom and that’s when I can become alive again and truly get into the running spirit.

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...
