5:00 a.m. Christmas Run

>> Monday, December 30, 2013

I woke up early at my parent's house and couldn't get back to sleep on Christmas morning. Pharmie went back home Christmas Eve in a snowstorm with her sister's family because she had to work on Christmas, but Henry and I stayed at Grandma's house another 2 nights to celebrate Christmas with a lot more family.

So I headed out for a quick run at 5 a.m. after a snowstorm on Christmas morning. I didn't have any reflective gear, but you can see lights coming for MILES if you go running in the country in southern Minnesota. When I got out to the main highway, my view 3 miles back towards town looked like this:


A little glow from my hometown of just over 2,000 people.

And the other direction looks off towards nothingness:


Really, that's looking straight down the highway.

I had nearly a 3 mile run - my longest since early Sept! Here's the view looking back down my parents snow-covered driveway with my footprints in the fresh snowbank (heading towards the machine shed) from when I left on my run:




A snowplow went by a few minutes after I finished running (as I was still walking).

Since then, I've had another run where I was able to go from 17 minutes of running to 20 minutes of running. I'm REALLY close to 3 miles of constant running now! Hopefully, by the end of this week I'll be running over 3 miles at a time!

Back with BIG NEWS soon!!! Hope everyone had a good Christmas!
