Oh, outdoor run, how I missed you.

When you don't run for a bit, you miss it. And when your first run back is a treadmill run, you appreciate the run but wish it was taking place outdoors. But then, when you finally get that coveted outdoor run, you don't just appreciate it, you fall in love all over again.

With every step of my 5-miler yesterday I did just that.

Running, I love you. Running, I love you. Running, I love you.

Does it ever get old? Does running ever stop wanting to hear how loved it is? Dunno. And don't plan to find out.

All I know is that my run rocked, although it was nothing special. It was just my first outdoor run after my brief time off and I loved it.

Running, I love you. Running, I love you. Running, I love you.

In other news, my breakfast giveaway is going on over here.

Have a great week, everyone! Run on!

I am new to your blog and I love it. I can't wait for my first outdoor run either. OK, we've been spending a lot of time outdoors skiing but now that we are ready to go home, I can't wait for my morning run tomorrow. And since we've been at altitude I am hoping to reap benefits of increased red blood count. :)
Happy running.

I'm glad you were able to get outside! I've been hitting the track or treadmill for my last few runs and it isn't the same!

I can't wait for an outdoor run where sweat is the only dirt I wear... the slushy snow mix stink!

Yes, that first outside run back after a break is the BEST!

Running outside is the best!

Lara said...

And that's why vacations or even illness is a good thing! We take a break from our regular routine and when we get back to it, we fall in love all over again. So glad you made it outside again, and that it was so perfect. :-)

No doubt about it, outdoor runs are the BEST!

I completely agree! I love running outdoors.

ajh said...

I totally agree. Outdoor runs are the best which is why I put up with cold cold temps!

Good luck on your relay!

I SO know what you mean. For me, it was the chance to do an outside, no pace goal 9 miler for the first time in a LONG time (since this half training has been all about pacepacepace). I was just loving being outside in the 60 degree weather, running really slow and feeling great. I'm looking forward to spring so we have that weather all the time...

Running outside really is the best! I cant wait till it starts to not snow everyday!

X-Country2 said...

I know exactly what you're talking about. It's supposed to be nice this week, and I'm dying ot get outside.

lindsay said...

i know exactly what you are talking about! guess that's another reason to appreciate the treadmill - makes you love "real" running even more :)

destinationathlete said...

I haven't had a good, non-snowy, non-cruddy run since around November of last year. I am really anxious to do it!!

Stephanie Nichole said...

Hi There! I hope you don't mind but I found your blog on Tall Mom's 1000 club... I noticed you're from Wynantskill! I'm originally from East Greenbush (now in Cincinnati) and my mom grew up in Wynantskill!

Isn't it freezing there? Since I moved away I can't imagine running in the cold northeast... it hurts to think about!!!

Happy Running!
Stephanie
