Winter Snow and Running Lately

Last Monday, Southern Maryland finally received some substantial snow!

Last Monday, Southern Maryland finally received some substantial snow!

A Few Words on How I’m Feeling Right Now:

Love the Skin Your in Now,
The Joy of Playing outside,
Exploring nature, at any age,
Fresh, natural exercise,
Pure joy in life, nature,
The quiet place, never losing sight of the simple beauty around you,
Soaking up the surrounding beauty, in its simplest, yet inspiring form

Winter: Cold Snowflakes on My Face. Loving Every Moment.

There is a fresh, raw beauty to a landscape covered in fresh, fallen snow.  Magical forests and trails waiting to be explored.  I wait through southern Maryland’s long spring, hot summers and mild autumns, for winter to arrive.  Perhaps it my cherished childhood memories of snowy Maine and upstate New York winters, but I cherish those cold, snowy winter runs.  As I run through the snow covered roads, I turn to see my footsteps left behind.

Footprints left behind in the snow.

I soaked up every tiny snowflake that fell last week.  I spent time outside running and playing, hiking and romping through the snow.  The cold fresh air and snow covered trees were energizing.  I’m obviously not a “warm weather” girl.  I love so much about winter and perhaps I cherish it just a bit more now, here, because winter doesn’t last long.  Running through cold, snowy winters can be embraced with a sense of adventure and a certain sense of peace and clarity that only vast white snowy landscapes can provide.

SnowDays:

Total Running mileage last week: 15 miles! 

Last week’s snow storm brought several snow days!  Snow days meant extra time to run outside, catch up on school work and read books! I’m currently reading Lone Wolf by Jody Picoult, she’s an author from New Hampshire!   Another book I’m about to delve into is Blog Inc, by Joy Deangdeelert Cho. A bit more info on this blogging book can be found HERE{Joy}. And a good bottle of wine to go with those snowdays isn’t too bad! Slack winery-Slack Tide Blanc is a crisp, light white wine with refreshing hints of citrus! Okay! I’m really no wine connoisseur! 

SnowDays: Wine and Reading!

Anyone else enjoy winter snow? I know my Northeast/New England friends might not be loving winter anymore. Share your current book or favorite bottle of wine!
