Oh. My. Goodness.
It is currently 8 degrees outside (as opposed to my -15 run on the weekend). I have been waiting for this weather for the last 2 months! Unfortunately, the last few weeks has left us with SO much snow, that this sunny day has made for a nice large puddle of slush basically everywhere. But whatever, it’s stunning out there, so I’m throwing my excuses out the window, putting on my shorts, shades and going for a (presumably very wet) run!
Not being able to (safely) run as much as I would like to, so close to a race, has left me a little frustrated, so actually getting out today was beneficial in more than one way: I got a 12km run in, in pretty tough terrain – hard ice, giant puddles, uneven snow. I got an hour of me-time. And also, I got to finish my latest audiobook! It’s an oldy, but a goody: The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne. I have been intrigued by this book since Oprah talked about it on her show about a decade ago, but never got around to reading it. I’m happy I finished it and feel empowered to continue building on my year of HAPPY. 🙂 Self-help and memoirs have been my favourite genre lately, and I enjoy learning something new: a new way of looking at an old way of doing things. Push your limits! Get out of your box! That’s where growth happens.
