A Stand Still

The weather here is slowly inching toward Spring, and yet, my running shoes haven't hit the pavement in quite some time. I've had the fleeting thoughts that it looks like a great day for a run, but haven't made it out. But what about my half? It's less than two weeks away, how will I survive it? In short, it's been a mutual agreement between my sis and I that we're going to "run/walk" it. She didn't have as much time as she was hoping to train for it, and I was more than happy to start slacking. Running outside in the freezing cold, isn't really my thing it turns out. I'd much rather be out cross country skiing. :) Are you surprised? I am a bit, but to be honest, it was a bit of a relief. I was feeling guilty for not running and going skiing instead, and skiing is one of my favorite parts of winter, I couldn't stand that guilt and needless to say, am incredibly happy it's turned out this way. I'm pretty sure I'll be looking for another half a little later on this "running season," one that will have me training in warmer weather, because I'd definitely like to run a full one. For now, I'll keep enjoying a 5K here and there to keep my legs moving.

I was curious how the training was going. Cross country skiing is great exercise and you should do what you love! I completely understand the lack of motivation to run in the cold and snow. I'm sure you'll still do great in a couple weeks when you tackle the half marathon, plus it will be great to just be w/your sis :)
