Did, done and it was hard…

Now I usually run on the treadmill in the winter time. I do some short runs on the tar and lots of hikes in the snow but I have never ran a 5K in the snow on a trail that isn’t cleared but I did today. It wasn’t fast, it wasn’t easy but I am proud of myself for doing it. 48 minutes at a snails pace some of the time and at a good trot the rest and at the end I looked like this. Huffing and a puffing and so glad to see Mike and the truck.

Starting out was better….

Thank you for hosting this run, Adam.

******************************************************************************

Now I found my next thing I want to do. It’s here and called 

It’s about picking 1 thing for health the weekend of February 10-12 and doing it. It can be anything you want and I want to run again in the snow. I want to run a bit faster then the 48 minutes it took me today. This challenge is hosted by Lori at Finding Radiance.

So I guess I’ll be working out a bit more in the ice and snow. Michele, I used the yaktrax you sent me last year for this and they worked perfect. Thank you!!

Onward and forwards. I’m trying, how are you doing?

Blessings my friends!!

Great job Julie!! So proud of you for getting out there and running outside!!! I whimped out and stayed on my treadmill today. And I didnt have near as much snow as you do!!!! Ive read about the Trax. Do you have to screw them into your shoes?

Great job!! I'm doing mine tomorrow & it will but outside but I think it will be shoveled. We did have some rain though so I'm wondering if I should use my trax. I know my time won't be as great as yours but I'm gonna try!
