Bringing in 2010

Hope everyone has a happy and safe new year! Its raining today, and I doubt the fireworks on the Needle will look like that this year. I am still planning on running in the rain at Alki (or maybe going on the dreaded treadmill, we'll have to see how bad it is out there).

Happy 2010!

Running in the rain.....

Alki Beach has one of the best running routes in the city. Not only is it over 5 miles (depending on where you start) but it is off the main road, includes a running AND biking path, and is about 95% lit along the route. For all of these reasons, I decided to go running last night.

I knew it would get cold, so I wore my new black running shirt from Island Sports (thanks LJ!), long leggings, mittens and my new LuluLemon headband. (PS, headband is now on sale!) I was warm for the entire run, even through the sleet, rain and snow that I ran through:

Next time I might not wear only black. I love the headband and tech shirt though. Both items were "wicking" and kept me warm AND dry in the weather. Maybe Ill go again tomorrow!

Happy Holidays!

Im trying to get back into running on a daily basis, but its hard during the holidays. I was going to start after the new year, but it was such a beautiful day that I decided to start on Christmas. Nothing better than running a few miles on Bainbridge!

I have to say, its a LOT colder now than it was a few weeks ago, you cant tell from the picture, but the ground is frozen.
