From sun to snow

Well all last week I was running in this...


And now I am back to this...


Brian and I went on a cruise last week and it was a much needed vacation.  But now we are back to life and back to work.  I defeintely got used to the warmer temperatures and coming back to the cold and snow was not exactly fun.

Last night we got pelted with about 2+ inches of snow which made this mornings run extra hard.  Between dodging snow plows and trying to not slip and slide around, I made it 5 miles.  My knee is actually feeling pretty good - I don't know how but the vacation really helped.  I still ran 5 of the 7 days for a total of 32.5 miles and my knee didn't really complain at all. 



Happy Monday!

There's a thin layer of slush everywhere for me, which made running very annoying. But at least it wasn't raining.

That's pretty harsh contrast! I hope you had a good vacation.

Beautiful pic! Where was your cruise? I'm excited to see some sun and warmth in March!

I wondered where you were! Welcome back! Happy to hear the knee is feeling good. What is next on the racing circuit for you? :)

Btw, I tagged you for a 11 things post. If you feel like doing it, you should.

I guess the knee needed a change of scenery as well :) Good job on running during your vacation! Where did the cruise go?

It's so hard to go from vacation back to reality. And add in teh snow -- but sounds like you are rocking it either way. :)
