On the fourth day of Christmas, my denim ran with me
Four times as hard,
Three fresh inches (powder),
Too sad to run,
By the light of a Christmas tree.
Central Oregon is under winter storm warning – blizzard!! so I decided to take advantage of the snow and run w/my Tubbs running snowshoes. It was literally four times as hard as a regular run and the entire run I was trying to decide if I should multiply the distance by four or cut my time by 1/4 to get an accurate read of how far I went.
Kidding. I only ‘ran’ a mile in about 15:30.
All I have to say is that denim was not meant for snowshoe running.
I switched jeans this time because my other pair has that obnoxious hole in the crotch. It normally does not bother me all that much but then again I don’t normally run in them. The jeans I wore to run in today were much more comfortable for running. Oddly I hate wearing them in real life.
(Katy, is running not considered real life?).
My jeans were soaked up past the backs of my knees and my calves got a nice ice treatment. Needless to day, I’m glad I’m back inside where it’s warm and where Santa is breathing down my neck to get all these gifts done!
You know, I would not have run today if it wasn’t for you. If it wasn’t for this silly blog and the comments and the ‘likes’ and the accountability, I would have stayed inside to continue cutting, pasting, taping, sewing, trimming, dreaming, creating. But it literally took a half hour out of my day to get dressed and get it done. One mile isn’t much but like I said it was four times as hard in snowshoes and denim, and it was 100% better than the workout a pair of scissors gives me.
I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday and you have taken some time to love on and appreciate the people in your life.
