Nothing wrong with occasionally reminding yourself that you're the one steering the ship! Glad you had a good run.

13*C and sunny? Beautiful day! But... did you mean 13*F??? Go back on the TM, crazy woman!
Actually, it sounds like you had a delightful run on a beautiful winter day. I'm glad that you trusted your gut. Very wise woman!

That sounds lovely, although in my book, 13* is not "crisp."
hop, hop, hop...
Yep, sometimes you just have to throw the schedule out the window. Can you send some of that sun my way? I need some sunny days to run in, or at least the days to get longer so when I get home it's still daytime. This winter grey is really starting to get me down..

Shari - I'm glad that you had a glorious run! We all need those to remind ourselves how delightful it can be, especially in the middle of the winter blahs.
But The Smile That I Sent Out Returned With You.
I understand about seeing the sun and wanting to be outside. This has been a grey and gloomy winter. Cold and sunny feels more welcome than warmer and cloudy.
Good for you!
This past Saturday's run was under grey skies with snow falling and was great. Sunday's run was under sunny skies and stunk.
No matter how they come, I will take a good run over a bad one any day!

Sometimes what's good for the soul benefits the body. Gotta love a good run!
Relentless forward progress
You definitely made the right decision, Shari! I love this post!
