So technically the blizzard hasn’t started yet. But I want to get my mileage in this week, so I ran both this morning & yesterday morning before work. I’m becoming a morning runner! I set up my cell phone alarm clock to look like this:
This morning I woke up and got out for my run! I took a camera with me to practice taking pictures while running. I’m practicing for the Disney Princess Half Marathon!
Here’s what my street looked like this morning. We got 2 inches of snow last night. I was wearing my Yak Trax!
Running in the city neighborhoods is a little different than some of the nature-like photos I see people take. Here’s my scenery from Bucktown:
There’s the “L” – the elevated subway system that we have here in Chicago (see the overpass in this picure below):
On the way home it was starting to be more slushy – the pavement warms up quickly!
Since we are preparing for Snowmaggedon, I am working from home today so that I do not get trapped at work in a white-out and have to eat cheez-its, oatmeal & tea for three days. After cleaning up from the run, I made myself a “grilled banana sandwich”
It was good, and I got the idea for trying this from here. Now off to work from my home office/guest bedroom!
Have you tried AM Running? What tricks work for you to get out and going? How long do you run for if it’s a morning run?
What’s the best at-home breakfast you’ve eaten? I need more ideas for the Snowmaggedon! We may be here for a while!
