    I am at the point in winter where that would be so freaking lovely. 41 days until spring break in Florida for me! I did run on the treadmill earlier. I did a walk/run and then stopped every 5 minutes to do some stair steps and jumping jacks.

    I ran this morning on the treadmill, only two, and I’m finishing off the evening with 6 outside. It’s kind of crazy because of that snow we had earlier in the week, there are these huge unmelted drifts on the sidewalk so I’m praying for no slips on the six-miler today.

    It’s been raining in Sydney this weekend, but I still got out for a run yesterday. I enjoy running in the rain when it’s still warm like it is now–I’m sure I’ll change my tune when it’s winter! Glad you enjoyed your run with your group–group running does make it better. πŸ™‚

    i totally know what you mean! when i was in orlando, it was so worth it to drive 30 minutes out to clermont to train. i loved the hills and the scenery and the lack of tourists. πŸ™‚ send some warm weather up here! i ran a half-marathon today and it was approximately 1 degree..

    Jealous that you got to run outside! It’s way too icy in Chicago so I’ve been running on the treadmill for a month πŸ™

    I got in my first run since NC was hit with the snow on Wednesday. The first mile was rough as there was still a lot of snow on the sidewalks where they didn’t get sunshine to melt the snow. After the first mile, the sidewalks cleared and I could go at a normal pace. It was super windy here too, brrrr!

    I’ve got 8 miles on the schedule this week. It was actually 75 today, which is lovely, but too hot for so close to my marathon. (It’s in one week!) I can’t really complain about the weather though when everyone else is snowed in.

    I am in Jax and it was freezing this morning. I ran an 8K race, and I was so cold waiting for it to start. I am glad the rain held off though.

    We live in the subarbs near Tampa and the parks and running trails out here are pretty non existent. I love making the little drive to run bayshore with my jogging stroller. But I’m always looking for new spots. Any suggestions!? Thanks πŸ™‚

    It’s amazing what a change of scenery can do. I live in the Chicago suburbs and I keep meaning to make time to drive into the city to run the path that runs along Lake Michigan, but the trail by my house is so much easier to get to. Your post has reminded me that I really do need to make an effort to try running in new places. I’m glad you had a great run, even if it was a bit windy!

    SO jealous of your weather and gorgeous views! I’d love to run there! You are totally right. Chamge of scenery can make a HUGE difference for running
    Its just great ti look forward to something besides running the same old trails! You’ve inspired me to change it up more often and run trails I dont usually run!

    I really wish that I could have done that run with you! I’m in Toronto and stuck to running on the treadmill. Happy Sunday!

    I have a Sunday run group. Here inMissouri we ran in 20β€’ weather on a snow packed trail last week, and this week it will be in the 50’s-60’s when it’s run time!

    We are all training for a half marathon in May- it will be my 4th, most of the groups first though. I’m definitely one of the fastest (not a humblebrag as I don’t consider myself fast!) but it’s nice to have people to do my long runs with, even if it is a slower pace for me.

    We almost always drive somewhere to run since we don;t live in a very runner friendly area. It’s not always the most conveinent but does keep things interesting!

    The Gasparilla half is one of my favorites to run plus they have the best medals right?

    I seriously LOVE running over there. I run the bridges in Clearwater whenever I can so let me know next time you want a running buddy! Which running group did you meet? You can email me to tell me if that’s better!

    I’m also doing the half this weekend! Let’s try to meet up. πŸ™‚

    Running along the beach sounds amazing, although running in the wind and rain sounds a lot less amazing πŸ™‚ I did 6 miles as well this week but there is no way I would have been able to hold a conversation while doing it – well done!

    I definitely love to drive a bit for the longer runs… mostly just 20-40 minutes away for some great locations near me. I always seem to wake up with a gut feeling on where I want/need to go that day! Enjoy those races!

    I live in Palm Harbor and ran the Iron Girl 5K last year. Are you running the Iron Girl this year? I wanted to do the half but I have a half in DC a couple weeks after it this year so I can’t do it but am thinking of doing the 5k for speed work. I heard running the Sand Key Bridge is intense but would love to try it at some point when I get the guts to. The Clearwater Bridge is hard in itself.

    I live in Palm Harbor and ran the Iron Girl 5k last year over the Clearwater Bridge. I heard the Sand Key Bridge is intense and I hope to get the guts to run it at some point. I am training for a half in DC two weeks after the Iron Girl half this year so I can’t run the half this year (it was my original goal). Are you running it?
