It's still only 2009 but I am ready for 2010! Well, only when it comes to recording my running mileage. I received my running log from www.personallogs.com the other day. You get to choose what you want on the front and because I don't have a good running shot of me, I picked a hiking picture. This photo was taken on the top of Fairview Mountain near Lake Louise. Even though it is not a running photo, it still embodies the idea of healthy lifestyle, enthusiasm and growing by pushing limits and going beyond comfort zones. I will have to work on a running shot for the 2011 log.
This morning was the first time I ran since the Halloween Howl 10km on October 24th. Well, unless you want to count Friday's run home from work in blizzard like weather wearing heels, suit, long coat, carrying a purse and small pack over my back with a pink silk scarf wrapped around my head. When I think back, that must have looked pretty hilarious. I don't care, I needed to get home! For this morning's run, I purposely left my watch at home and just went for it. It went fine, I did roughly 5km with a couple of stops for lights and a walk break or two. Good thing at times I had the chinook winds at my back. Boy, I have a lot of work to do to get back up to snuff. Good thing next weekend's run is short and a fun one. I registered for the Salvation Army's 5km Santa Shuffle.
