A Sunday Run in the Rain

What to do on a rainy Sunday morning…a bike ride wasn’t an option (we no longer ride fat-tired bikes!), snowshoeing–which had been a heavy favorite–fell out of favor when we learned that the snow level had risen to 6500 feet, and the indoor option just didn’t jazz us (elliptical and air-dyne bike–effective but oh-so-mundane)…we have not been running lately because of the recent snowfall, so when my sweetie suggested that we take Grace for a run on the ditch, I immediately responded with a hearty YES!

What a blast! We ran through snow, splashed in puddles, laughed with Grace as she bounded joyfully after a stick, leapt over fallen branches, smelled the delicious wood smoke wafting from chimneys, and appreciated the strength in our legs–even after two weeks without running–so much so, that we went for a second lap of our standard loop! About an hour later, we returned home with exuberant energy, wet feet, and big smiles.

What marvelous activities do you have planned for this rainy Sunday?

"Robin Mallery has been working with me for over a year now. During this time, she has introduced me to many different thought and choice options--most importantly she has helped me understand that I am the most important choice. Her passion for living right and feeling even better brings a human support to a process that could easily have been uncomfortable and unsuccessful. She is tireless in her unending support. Her talent for listening heightens a nurturing coaching relationship. I recommend Robin for those that have chosen to change; she will help support that decision, and you will be pleased that you chose to change and that you chose Robin as your coach."
