well, i ventured out into cold windy snowy atmosphere yesterday and ran for about 2 hours. 17K in total. it felt pretty good. then i took a nice bath and then sat down for what was supposed to be a nap, but i ended up sleeping right into the night! guess the run took more out of me than i had thought. oh well, 16 hours of sleep later, and it's now Jan 18, and i am ready to start my day!
