these January days have been short, foggy, cold and wet and grey!
(We have not seen the sunshine in 5 days.)
More of the same is forecast for the next couple of days,
even a small (which means not at all here) chance of snow
But dull, gray January days have a beauty all their own.
I decided that today was the day to go for it.
(I didn't have to be at work until 10)
To get off the couch and to get back in the habit
of walking and running everyday.
I almost let the weather stop me.
The temperature was in the mid 30's.
It was windy and foggy and misty and just plain miserable!
I would have much rather have stayed in my pj's
snuggled up on my couch and crocheted!
I got dressed, put on my raincoat, grabbed my ipod and
my headphones and headed out the door before
I could talk myself out of it
One of my favorite places to walk is the local cemetery...is that weird? There is never anyone else there of course, who else would ever think it a good idea?
I love the quiet. No distractions. A great place to come and think and clear out my mind To enjoy the peace and solitude. It was a little spooky at times, not being able to see very far ahead
I am not a graceful runner...
I don't have the cute outfits, with the perfect ponytail
and the perfect form.
I am more of an arms flailing,
hair sticking out because it is too short to go into a rubber band
and not a cute running outfit to be found!
But THIS IS THE YEAR that I will get back on track
maybe I'll even buy one of those cute outfits.
