Winter Training, Long Run #1

We couldn’t have had a nicer winter day for our first long run of CARA winter marathon training. Though the wind kept my lips numb, the bright sunshine inspired a spring in my step. I feel like I could have run forever. Colors were hyper-saturated and shadows over-pronounced. We were in a kodachrome high-contrast movie scene. Unfortunately, I had an internal soundtrack that kept playing the same annoying 80’s songs…??? I’m not sure why.

No one in my pace group was interested in the intermediate mileage (8m as opposed to 5m). So, I just went for an additional 5 miles on my own (for a total of 10 m). Next week I’ll look for a different pace group with people doing the intermediate distances.

Look at that sunshine and those shadows!
