No. I’m not talking about food cravings that are related to pregnancy. I haven’t had any of those in a while. What I’m craving right now is a long run. I’m craving cold air in my lungs. I’m craving sore muscles brought on by running one extra mile. I’m craving a cold nose, ear warmers, running shorts, and long sleeve shirts. I’m craving running at dusk when I get home just after it gets dark.
Today is the perfect running day. It’s in the low 50s and there is a wonderful breeze off the water. I wish I had a 5 mile run scheduled for today. Even more so, I wish I had a 10+ mile run schedule for this weekend. I love running during this time of year. (I also love running when it’s 20 degrees outside and I have to avoid ice patches on the road. Good thing since I probably won’t run until the end of January or early February. Sigh! That seems so far away, but I know it is not.)
Somebody please go running for me today! The boardwalk is just begging for runners to show up today!
