It’s that time of the month…
As I am writing this post, I have sunshine on my mind for obvious reasons.
1. Over coffee…
I’d tell you that these cloudy skies are really getting me down. I don’t mind the cold temps and the snow as long as the roads are clear.
But I need SUN!!
I’d tell you that luckily I have SIX friends who winter in Florida (on the east coast) and they ask me to come down and stay with them.
I’ll be there visiting them (and looking for sunshine) Feb.
I’d tell you that I love our free winter local races and so I signed up for all FIVE!
But because a friend’s husband recently died of Parkinson’s, I decided to move up my vacation in Florida and add a stay with her for two days.
So I am going to miss the 5th race on Feb. 12…
But I think I made the right decision!!
I’d tell you that I am excited to connect with fellow blogger Jenny again. Not sure if we will meet up in Boca where she lives (and I’m staying) or just at the Fort Lauderdale Half Marathon we are both racing.
I’d tell you that I can’t wait to see the ocean and run at sunrise!!!
Fingers crossed to clear skies….
** One more for good measure – Over coffee…
I’d tell you that even with the snowy gloomy January weather, I did have a strong start to 2023.
In order to reach my annual 1000 mile goal, I need to run around 84 miles each month.
In January, I ran:
This gives me a cushion for June & July when the weather heats up and I have no half marathons to train for.
Happy Running! What’s new with you? Will you get a chance if you live up North to escape the cold temps? Does the lack of sunshine bother you? Have you started off 2023 strong? Please share.
