Snow Finally Taking its Toll

Friday night my husband and I went out for a little while. It had started to snow and the roads were horrible! Based on the slickness of the local streets, I decided to not even attempt to meet the Buckeye Striders for our Saturday morning walk. After I woke up way too late to meet them, I discovered the group arranged to be inside at a local mall.

I probably would not have made it to the mall regardless (I don't do malls), I did feel guilty about not walking. I'm scheduled to do 9 miles this week and there is no way I could have made it 9 miles in a mall. And lately, if I can't get my miles in on scheduled days, I end up unable to catch up.

The weather is definitely making it tough to walk right now. We have had record snows in Central Ohio and I am just now starting to have trouble maintaining my motivation.

So, I sit here on my couch, in my nice warm house, drinking coffee from my US Air Force Marathon mug. Hmmm. Maybe drinking coffee from my favorite (and only) marathon with help keep me motivated. It's worth a shot!
