Honestly, one of the greatest joys of running for me is the ability to run outside. Running on a dreadmill (treadmill) or in circles on an indoor track just doesn't cut it. I need to be out in the fresh air, enjoying the scenery. I was so thankful to get out today for a 30 minute run, even if it was misting and foggy the whole time and I had to jump over the occasional snow hill and walk gingerly around some patches of ice. It's the best run I've had in a long time. I just cannot wait for Spring to get here!
Since I ran outside, I decided to skip the gym today. I didn't want to ruin my euphoria of being outdoors and enjoying the fresh air with the stale smell of sweat in the gym :)
