Last night at 11:30 I climbed back into my winter running gear. I had just pulled it out of the dryer as I had just finished a long snowshoe run in what didn't seem like too many hours ago.
At 11:45 5 hearty souls from the Big Lake Run Club met in at our Wednesday night location and headed on out. It was 30F and not even a slight breeze. What a great night for a run.
At 12:00 Kevin's watch began to beep, we watched a few fireworks appear and high fived one another. We talked about how thankful we are, to be able to run in the New Year. Still healthy, still running, still alive and kicking. That's all we can ask for.
After we finished the 5 mile route we set up a table in the parking lot. Out came wonderful hot cocoa, cookies, biscotti, spinach dip and bread and some non-alcoholic champagne.
An awesome start to 2006!
