This morning we are headed to Wachusett Mountain for our first family ski trip of the season. I haven’t skied in years (since before James was born!), so it will be the first time in a while for me–I’m hoping my legs cooperate! I’m also excited because I will get to meet up with some of my Boston Parent Blogger friends. It’s always fun to hang with these lovely ladies in real life! 🙂
Things are looking up in the weather department here on Cape Cod. I actually ran outside again on Saturday. The wind was 20 mph along the water, so instead of running all the way along the beach, I made a route adjustment. I foolishly didn’t wear my running mittens (thinking it was in the upper 20s and relatively balmy!). When I hit the water, my hands and ears got a reality check!
I couldn’t feel my fingers after a few minutes, so I decided to make a right and head up through town. As soon as I got out of the wind, my hands warmed up and before I knew it, I was breaking a sweat. What a glorious feeling! 🙂 I was very thankful for my Saucony Ride 7 sneakers with Gore-Tex. They are totally waterproof, and they kept my feet nice and dry through all of the puddles and slush! It was so great to feel the sun shining down on me, even if it was only in the 20s!
In fact, we are set to have a stretch of sunny days– thank God! It’s amazing what a difference some vitamin D makes. Above is a pic from a run last week that really shows how beautiful Surf Drive beach is– even in the cold and snowy winter. No matter the season, my beach running route never ceases to amaze me with its stunning beauty.
Now that we have an extra hour of light at the end of the day, I’m looking forward to more outside runs!
