Ok, it was only 2 miles....but still!

Ya know what? I ran- OUTDOORS- in the winter time! And I didn't die of cold! WOW, who knew I could do it? I don't know why I chose yesterday of all days to run outside. It was the coldest it's been so far, I certainly could have picked a warmer day. Maybe I wanted to face the temps at there coldest to see if I could actually stand it. It wasn't the greatest experience of my life, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. And best of all, I didn't fall down once. I thought for sure I would slip on the ice, ya know, just as a car was driving past! But I didn't! I didn't even buy any new clothes for the occasion. I layered myself with what I found around the house, and I looked like a damn fool, but I stayed warm, maybe a little too warm, and I think I am going to do it again real soon. Thanks to everyone who offered me encouragement. I know I wouldn't have even got myself out there to give it try if it weren't for you guys!

Jeanne, I am soooo going to work on my paragraphs. ANYONE would have trouble reading white letters on orange!

Take care...
