I finally was able to peel myself away from Olivia this morning to go for my run despite her ability to be a nice heater on cold mornings.
My long run ended up being 5.5 miles instead of 5, which is great given the weather I had to get through this morning.
I left at about 8:45 am and the weather was clear despite the thin layer of wet snow that fell over night. By the time I made my way through Bay Village, it felt like I was being pelted by those ice cream dots.
If only they tasted like ice cream! As I ran through Huntington Park and back to Lake Road, the sun was out and the snow was melting.
Despite the crazy weather, it was a very peaceful and quiet run. I didn’t pass one other runner and kept thinking how awesome it was that I dragged myself out and was braving the sleet/hail balls that were bouncing off of my eyelids. Sometimes you just need to pat yourself on the back during rough runs.
