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?
