Six miles today over lunch; I was loving the chance to see downtown bathed in sunlight again, instead of under cover of darkness per usual.

Plus, it’s melting! Take a look at that Charles trying to flow freely. (Of course, I know it’s only February and we’ve got two more months of winter to contend with in these parts, but that’s a start! If I don’t have to wear snow cleats on Marathon Monday I’ll consider that a win.)

Normally, I avoid running during the workday, because the temptation to linger is too great. Nonetheless, with an early meeting this morning and dinner plans tonight, I was determined to make the most of my lunch hour; the warmth and sunshine were absolutely worth the accelerated pace to get me back to the office in time.

      Danielle, a few things – I’m lucky that my office has showers for employee use, so that’s always an option. Even if I don’t go that far, I keep gym towels, facewash and deodorant in my desk, so generally I sit outside to cool off a bit before coming and and cleaning myself up. Not so sure I’ll be able to get away with lunchtime runs in warmer weather…
