Pull up a chair and have an anti-inflammatory smoothie.
Let the 'fessing begin...

It hardly feels like January in my neck of the woods. Did you see my pictures from last weekend's sunny Chicago lakefront run with Marcia and Kim? While I'm enjoying our winter--this mild weather makes the running easy--I can't help but wonder: where is the snow? I runfess that I love a good snow run. I know, be careful what you wish for--the last time challenged the universe I got norovirus--but still, I wouldn't mind a little more snow. We've really only had one significant snow and that was back in December. The temperatures are falling back to what is normal for this time of year, so let's see what happens.

I'm still playing with yoga on the run, and if you read my weekly recap last week, you saw that I finally landed handstand, unassisted. I runfess that I tried probably 10 times before I was able to get my legs straight and together. It was really fun trying, though, and someone asked me to share the outtakes. I think these are better than the actual pose...
I runfess that I have been limiting my time on Facebook. My feed is full of political posts and I have had enough. I'm not shy about my feelings for Donald Trump but he is in office and there's not a whole lot we can do about it. I have incredible anxiety about his presidency and seeing all the negativity in my feed is just making me feel worse. So if I'm not liking your running posts or personal posts, it's because either I'm not seeing them or I'm just not on FB enough to find them. I'm an administrator for a fitness blogging page so I have to check in, and I do link up posts to my TTLWH page, but for now, I'm taking a little break from everything else. Well, almost everything else...
By the way, if you blog and would like to join our Facebook Fitness Blogging Group, send me a message. The group hosts social media threads where you can post your links and increase your engagement. We'd love to increase our membership! It's been a lot of fun and I've met some amazing bloggers through the group. And it's a politics-free zone!
How is your winter? Do you have snow? Find anything interesting on the run? Did you do the lululemon/strava challenge?
I'm linking up with Marcia for Runfessions as well as Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0.
