I got to run outside again today! We’ve had two days with afternoon temps just above freezing, so much of the ice has melted, not all of it, but much. I was so happy to be outside and not on the treadmill that even though my run was not the most scenic, it was still glorious to me!
I did a quick 7 miles this afternoon. I wanted to run in the daylight so that I could see any lingering icy spots (there were quite a few) along with downed trees and branches. Many trees suffered casualties from the weight of the ice. I had to negotiate around many poor tree limbs.
And here’s something strange that I also saw on the sidewalk – a fleshlight. If you don’t know what it is, google it when you’re not at work. Hahaha. I had to stop my run and go back to make sure I had seen what I thought I had…and I had indeed! Not sure how it got there or why, but it gave me a chuckle.
Anyway, this morning I saw this sight over our garage door, and figured I’d snap a pic before they all melt.
Again, it was just a simple mid week training run, but after being cooped up indoors for almost a week, it felt glorious!
How bout you? Had any glorious runs lately? Come across anything strange on the ground during a run? Is saying an icicle broke your glasses a good excuse after an incident with your Red Ryder BB Gun?
