Guys, I don't even know who I am anymore. I like running in cold weather!
I was so not looking forward to running in the cold this winter. But last week, I reluctantly got out all of my winter gear and fessed up to the fact that the cold weather was probably here to stay. I was right. This past week gave us PA'ers "feels like" morning temperatures anywhere between 8-23 degrees. Pretty freaking cold!
But it didn't suck! And on Friday morning, I was actually looking forward to a brisk, cold run! I had my Survivor pod casts loaded up and was ready to just zone out. I even wished I had time to run more than my normal 5 miles. Sometimes I am an icicle after 5 miles of running and need to go inside. But I felt good and could have gone for longer if had had the time. (Stupid work.)
I'm sure it will get colder, but I am going to try to keep the positive attitude I currently have about the freezing temperatures.
Mind over matter, right!?
How do you feel about running in the cold? I know “cold” is a relative term. Depending on where you live, “cold” might be 50 degrees… or it might be -10 degrees and you’re laughing at me right now!
