.....I fell off the face of the Earth or at least it feels like I did.

I have been traveling for the past 5 weeks and I am now home for good. I'm in my second trimester now which means I have more energy and less nauseousness and that's always a good thing. I know I've said it before, but starting tomorrow I'm starting my new routine and I'm going to get my runs in. I'm thinking the mornings are going to be best cause with the kids starting school next week and it still being hot out and all.

So, last night, I was thinking while driving at 12am from Bend, Oregon to SLC that it's funny that I am more motivated to run early in the morning in the freezing cold of winter than I am during a nice summer's morning. I am SO weird. :) You'd think it'd be the other way around. Maybe it's the fact that in the winter time there's only a select few runners out running that early in the morning in the cold and I feel like one of the select. And maybe it's the fact that I'm so slow right now that anyone who sees me ( EVERYONE is out running right now) run in the nice summer mornings will think to themselves, "That girl might as well be walking." I dunno.

Well, keep an eye out tomorrow, I'll make sure to post about my run (I'm planning on 4 miles). The only thing I have left to do tonight is search the house for my Garmin. I have NO clue where it is.

I like winter running better at night - mostly because it's safer; the roads are plowed by then so it's easier to figure out where the ice might be hiding. Time is another winter evening run factor; I'd have to be up at 4:30 to run in the winter and it's cold, cold, colder then!
Have a great run tomorrrow!

Welcome back. Glad you are safely into your 2nd trimester!

I have to say, I hate winter running, period. Give me the warmth any day of the year!
