Running In A Cloud

That’s what it felt like this morning. Seriously. Like running in a cloud.

I got up early, put on my WHM training tech tee (LOVE it) and headed out the door for my first run since the half marathon on Sunday.

I love my Nike tempo shorts. Seriously – best fitting running shorts ever. Pretty flattering too! I literally have at least six pairs of them – maybe more.

I stepped out the front door and literally said, “WHOA”.

I could barely see my car through all the fog.

I drove down to meet up with the other IRunMommies for our Saturday morning run and have never been so thankful to be running with other people. There is no way I would have run in that fog and darkness alone!

The girls I usually run with weren’t there so I did my best to keep up with the rest of the crowd. I still ended up dropping toward the back and did my best to keep up with the girl who is five months pregnant. I kept telling myself, if she can do this, I can too!

We covered just over four miles this morning in some very soggy weather.

Not too shabby!

Now onto the rest of my busy weekend…hope yours is a good one!

What is the craziest weather you’ve ever experienced on a run?

  1. Wow that is some intense fog! If it’s bad weather, I tend to head to the gym and run on the treadmill. This summer I went on a run in 91 degree weather, and that was unbelievably hot. My run 2 weeks ago it was sleeting the entire time, so i guess those are the 2 extremes I’ve gone running in the last few months.

  2. I ran 4 miles in about 3-4 inches of snow/sleet/ice with more snow and sleet falling during the run. Luckily, I was with a running buddy who kept me going! Love your blog!

  3. I don’t know if I would have liked the weather you were running in! I ran in the rain once with my husband and kind of enjoyed it. I forgot to wear contacts though, so I put my glasses in my pocket and ran pretty much blind. I wouldn’t have stuck with it if DH wasn’t leading the way.

    My worst extreme was running in really cold temps. Even dressed right it took over 2km for my feet to feel normal. I’ll mostly stick with my treadmill til spring!

    I was so disappointed that I couldn’t run this morning. I couldn’t see across the canal we live on this morning. the fog was crazy. The picture of the foggy running is so cool!

  5. You girls need some reflective gear. Stay safe in that fog.
    Great job in the run.
    I once ran in 20 degree weather, in the mountains with a light snow falling. I got frost on me. Really? I started getting frost on my upper lip. Weird.
