It has been brutally cold this past week, but today the sun was out and temps were in the twenties. Good day for a run, right? The most running I have done lately is three miles at an indoor fitness center. Today I went out to Shawnee Mission Park and dodged snow, ice and slush, went up and down hills, challenged the winds and temps and played dodgem with cars for four miles. I was gassed when I finished, but boy was it great to be outside. I am going to increase my running mileage until the roads are safe for cycling again. My goal is to complete a 10K run on St Patricks day.
