I ran 7 miles in 1:06:14 for an average page of 9:27 per mile. I was proud of myself that I ran that fast saying that I haven't been doing anything running wise since after my last half marathon in November. I would have gone faster had there not been areas of sidewalk with snow on them! I have no idea why those areas weren't cleaned up, but whatever.
And... I fell in love with running again. I loved feeling the cool breeze on my face, hearing the sound of my feet hitting the sidewalk and taking my tour of all the huge houses in the subdivision that I like to run through. I also like seeing all the cars pass by since I'm sure some of those people are amazed that someone would be running in the cold.
Hopefully my dad, my brother and I will be able to run the marathon this year! I have until the 28th to wait and see what the marathon's game plan is for registration. There are only 15,000 spots left so we shall see what happens. If not, I'm sure I will put some races on my calendar so I can have something to look forward to once the weather warms up.
