I was never so excited as when I got up to run 6 miles today. After weeks of running on the dreadmill because of the weather, the sun was shining. The temperature was just over 30 on the way to 40. Glenn Ellyn Runners meet every Sunday morning and Snips was meeting me there. It had been weeks since we had run together and there was alot of catching up to do.

Snips signed up for the Chicago Marathon again this year. I plan on running part of it with her. Glancing quickly at my training schedule, it looks like about 16 miles on that weekend. What better way to get it done!

My funk at the end of the week has dissipated thanks to today's run. Snips is such an upbeat and positive person. I appreciate every time that we get to run together. For years, I trained alone. Now that I train with others, I am amazed at the difference that it makes.

Waddling after a great weekend..............

Yay! Running with others makes it so much more fun!

I have been feeling rather guilty about all the nice weather we have been having when you guys are socked in. I am glad you got to get outside and off the dreadmill!

Yes, wasn't it great for a change! And a couple more days before winter sets in again. Spring is coming!

Indeed...this weekend was a real spirit-lifter. Running outside, in shorts, on dry pavement...what a concept. Glad you enjoyed it!!
