Still Trail Running in January?

Beach Run

If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you will know that I normally have an off season when it comes to running. I just don’t like running in the winter. So, it’s kind of surprising that today, January 5th, I went for a run outside.

Cold Beach

I wore jogging pants, a t-shirt, and a light windbreaker, which was perfect for the 5° weather.

Washed Up Tire

It’s really nice to run along an empty beach and hear the gentle sound of rolling waves.

I wonder how this tire got here though?

The beach is part of a park that has a nice trail running through it.

It was a bit muddy today, but I didn’t mind.

Thin Ice

Seeing the thin layer of ice on the creek made this run feel even more surreal.

That was a first. Trail running, alongside a beach . . . in January.

If this weather keeps up, I can do it again. If not, it will be back to the treadmill for me.
