Cold Days


I don’t have much to say today, except that it’s cold outside and I mean chilled to the bones kind of cold.  I should have worn my ski jacket or really heavy winter coat this morning (if only the metro did not cause me to have hot flashes in the wintertime when I’m bundled up so tight I can hardly breathe!).  Such is the problem with public transportation…you have to be prepared for all sorts of temperatures.  But I digress…it’s COLD outside and if it’s going to be this cold it really should be snowing outside.  We haven’t had a good snow yet and I’m ready.

I took a short break over lunch today to visit the nearest Barnes & Noble.  It was a brisk walk but once inside it was very relaxing as Josh Groban’s singing throughout the store greeted me. I headed to the sports section and picked up a few books about training for your first triathlon.  A friend put a bug in my ear and now I’m seriously considering training for one, but also thinking I’ll use the winter months to just think some more about this possible new challenge.  I can’t decide!  But one thing is for sure, if I do take the leap I will train for this when it is warmer outside.  Till then…wish me luck on Monday for my boot camp class that starts very early and is outside in what else, but the cold.  Happy Friday!

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...

    If you want to jump into a triathlon, I *highly* suggest starting with the Columbia Irongirl–everyone is so supportive and it’s in August, so you have plenty of time to train. Also, the Virginia Set Up Events Series and the Maryland Set Up Events Series are AWESOME. I’ve done Culpeper (also in August) a couple of times, and it’s very well run.

  3. Thanks for the advice Sarah! I’ll check out the websites!

    And how are you doing? I need to see what you are up to on the exercise front!
