Making Lemonade Out of Lemons

The snow banks along the roads now resemble a city skyline, making running on the roads after work a bit treacherous in the town I teach in. Thank goodness we averted having a snowday the other day, unlike this poor woman a few hours to my north.

Came up with a plan to avoid the town's roads altogether by running a 1.15 mile figure eight loop ten times that went around the high school and the adjacent junior high school. A bit boring, but better than missing a run altogether and it was quite nice not having to worry about traffic one bit. Just moseyed along and allowed the mind to wander.

Ran 11.5 miles @ 8:19/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 143/152
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Lower 20s, partly cloudy.
Long pants, fleece jacket, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt, refl. vest, beanie, gloves.

some of the best thinking gets done while just moseying
