“HOLY HELL,” said a friend from California when I told her it was -7F in Minnesnowta this morning.
Yeah, it’s cold AF, but the bright side: when it’s this cold it’s usually sunny. And, who doesn’t love a little vitamin D in the dead of winter?!
I like to say I’d love to live where temps don’t dip below freezing, but who am I kidding. I’m Minnesotan through and through. There’s something about days like today that really make me feel alive – even when I can’t feel my fingers during my quick lunch walk with Luma! (Next purchase: Hestra narpes mittens.)
There are three more months of winter. Bundle up – there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing – embrace it and get outside!
In training news, I ran three miles on the treadmill tonight. I’d much rather run outside – even in this weather – but since my offseason fell during the gradual ease into winter temps, I’m not quite acclimated… yet. Anyway, I can’t believe I ran an entire marathon just seven shorts weeks ago at a faster pace than tonight. The sign of a good offseason – and of lots of work to do…!
