dots and dots of no

it's snowing again, and we're loving it! well, the girls and i are enjoying it, ty is indifferent. i like driving in the snow, walking in the snow, staring at the snow, thinking of snow. etc. etc. etc.

but this morning, i wasn't expecting it to be snowing at 5:40 in the morning.
I start walking to the gym and realize i'm getting covered in it.
back to the house.
back out to the gym with snow boots/coat and backpack w/ shoes inside.
back to the house.
back out to the gym again with my pass. ugh. that wasted almost 5 minutes because i didn't know i'd have to wrapped up like nanook of the north just to walk 4 blocks.

today was interval training (fast,slow,fast,slow). yes, i'm still training for a marathon, in the dead of winter. which makes me think that all this waking up at the crack of dawn and denying myself of the snooze button and my electric blanket is a form of this:

 gratification gained from pain, deprivation, degradation, etc., inflicted or imposed on oneself, either as a result of one's own actions or the actions of others

I agree, :) But that's why I'm not a runner and will never be doing a marathon. I'm way impressed by your dedication, though!

And I'm glad you're loving the snow! I hope it stays until we come up next week for Christmas!
