Monday Motivation: Winter is Coming
If you watch Game of Thrones or better yet have read the books, (because they are so much more excellent than the movie) the phrase "winter is coming" makes you think of so much more than just winter being on the way.
(totally a side note, but do you ever look at a word and even though you have seen it, used it and wrote a thousand times, suddenly it looks strange and wrong and sounds weird? That just happened to me with winter. I mean look at the word winter. Looks similar to winky. )
Wow is this post about anything yet?..
Oh yeah what is motivating me on this Monday morning, winter is coming. Right now however the weather is slightly chilly but great for fall running. I intend to get out and run every chance I get before the artic air makes it's way south and we have subzero temps for what feels like months.
I am throwing on a running skirt every chance I get. It was 40 degrees yesterday when I set out on my run, which is where I draw the line for skirts, especially when it is a little breezy and the sun is hiding behind the clouds. It was a little chilly at first, but once I got warmed up, it was perfect.
About a mile into the run I got a "niggle" in my right knee so I stopped to walk and have a mini photo shoot.
It worked. Niggle gone. I love how bright my green running vest is. I feel so visible, and not at all to be confused with a deer since it is hunting season still. 6.3 miles and it felt uphill all the way.
\What is making you get out there today?
What temp is your cutoff for shorts or skirts?
