About the first mile, my body was warmed up and my legs felt springy, it was great. It was at that point when i knew this wasn't going to be just a 3 mile run, i was smiling and loving every minute of it. I am sure that every person that drove by me thought i was a lunatic but once again i stopped caring what others think. I would come across sections of road with patches of snow/ice and puddles, instead of dreading them, i treated them like a game bounding from point to point to avoid the puddles. At times i would find myself kind of spinning in circles by running backwards for a few steps then forward and backwards and so on... this is why i love running.
All said and done i think it came up just short of 6 miles. By the time i finished, what used to be the puddles i avoided were then found with a thin layer of ice over them. It was a good run today and a great reminder of why i am doing this all.
