Hey there typical PNW weather…

I was starting to think you had left Bellingham and decided not to return! We’ve had quite the dry/cold snap, and it came to an end. Bring on the rainy day gear and tolerance for grey skies…

I went for an awesome run on Friday night. It ended up totaling at 8.5 miles–but here’s the thing, I could have kept going. I only went home because I needed to spend some time with my kiddo and help out with dinner preparation. After a lighter week of running, it felt amazing to run more than 10K without incident.

I was not able to make the yoga class on Saturday, but I did enjoy a nice walk. I am going to try to make room for either yoga or a hike this Saturday. Yesterday I went for a run with no destination; the goal was to explore trails and greenbelts a bit north of where I live. I ended up running about 6 miles, and I had so much fun trying out a new route. I do so much running in the dark that I almost always have a crystal clear route, for safety’s sake, mostly. Yesterday I was able to enjoy a daytime run (what?) and I even got some coastal time to enjoy a stormy harbor (above).

I hope to tick up my mileage a bit this week.

Happy Monday!

  1. The weather has been the same here in Portland — dry and cold weather made for some beautiful runs the past few weeks. And today I was out in the damp, soggy, wet weather once again. It was still beautiful and I felt lucky to be outside enjoying a run, though, so I’ll take it!

    I didn’t know you ran in the dark a lot. I am impressed. That is something that I basically never do but if I had no other choice, I’m sure I could get used to it. 🙂

    Have a great week!

  2. That is such a great feeling to have after a run – that you coulda went for longer! It gives you great confidence for the next time, when you have the time for it!
    Have a great Monday!
