Something, a year ago, I never thought I'd say: "It's a short run today, only 10 km"

When I started running (again) last year, I never thought I'd be running as far as I am now. Then, I thought the longest I'd be going might be 15km for a training run and that would be it. Then I had this stupid great idea of running a half marathon, and ever since then I think my idea of 'short run' has been kinda skewed. That being said, it was totally awesome to only have to run for about an hour. Despite the semi-recent snowfall, and the fact that it was still -10 or something when I had my run this morning, it was sunny and not windy, so the run felt really nice.

Anyway, overall the running is going well. I am (hopefully) getting faster, so my race times will come down this year, which will be awesome. I have dreams of being fast, but then I realize all the work I'd have to put in, and I don't really have the time, or more accurately, I don't want to put in all the time to get really fast. Maybe if I win the lottery. I should, however, get in all my runs each week, and stop cheating - I usually miss at least one of them per week, and I shouldn't because it's not like they are long or anything. I'm just laaaaaaaaaaaaaazy. Hopefully when the weather gets better (seriously, it's the end of March and it's still below 0C? Not amused, here), I'll feel more like running. Well, until it gets stupid hot and humid, and then I'll have the same problem of getting out.

In unrelated news, I'm almost...half done my afghan. My ridiculously expensive afghan (made with shepard bulky weight by Lorna's Laces ). It will be soft and warm, and I love it though.
