Walking (Running) in a Winter Wonderland


Hudson Mohawk Runners Club sponsors FREE races throughout the winter for its members. The course is pretty boring but free is free.  So I signed up for the 3 mile option (there was also a 15K)  today and hoped the conditions would be ok for running.

Well, I woke up to at least a foot of snow.  My hubby wasn’t keen on rushing to clear the driveway so I bailed on the race and baked cookies instead.

Eventually, the sun came out and though it was windy, it was warmer than yesterday. I had some errands to do so I drove into town to run. My legs were feeling the effects of 7 miles yesterday.  I again wore my yak trax and took a slow 3 mile run.

So that’s 10 miles for the weekend.  That’s a lot for me.

But there’s a reason:

Monday – cookie party at work, tennis after
Tuesday – tennis, dinner out with tennis ladies
Wednesday – yoga, friend’s birthday dinner out
Thursday – movie, friend’s birthday dinner out
Friday – annual tennis party

I will be eating a lot of food this week and I don’t know when or if I will find the time to run.

Happy Running! How was your weekend?
