I decided to stay active this winter. Normally, when it starts to get cold, I hang up my running shoes for the season. I don’t like running outside when it gets below 5°C.
The funny thing is, it’s been warmer than that several times this winter and I have taken full advantage of that by hitting the trail.
Last week, we had a day where it was 8°C outside, so I headed to the beach for a run.
I was really surprised to see these large ice hills along the shore. I’ve never seen anything like it. But I also don’t usually visit the beach in February.
These ice hills jutted out further than the shore. It felt strange climbing them because I knew I was standing above the water.
And they were quite tall.
I wanted to run the trail but it was a little treacherous.
Fortunately, there is a nice paved path that runs through the park.
But even that proved challenging to navigate.
Still, it was really nice to be able to run outside in February, wearing a t-shirt and jogging pants. I didn’t need a hat, gloves, or a windbreaker.
It was beautiful!
