This morning I had planned to go for a 5 mile run after I dropped Noah at the babysitter's and before I went to work. Well, at 5:05 a.m. I thought I heard rain, and I asked Kel if it was raining. He said it wasn't rain, it was snow.
Now, first let me say, I believe in running in snow! Last year I bought some Yaktrax so I would have no excuses, but when I looked out the window and saw the windy, snowy landscape, I put my bike shorts on.
Then as I was walking Ryan to the bus stop, the sky offered up some freezing rain, so I didn't even feel guilty about forgoing the run.
Then I got home and thought to myself how nice it would be to finish my coffee in front of the fireplace while catching up on some blog reading.
It is now 9:30 a.m., and I must get ready for work. The bike ride did not happen, so I will be communing with my friend the trainer at 8 p.m. instead...and I will say to myself, "I hope that coffee in front of the fire was worth it!"
