Today I'm thankful that...

  • the sun was shining brightly and the temperature hovered around 0 because when I got to the corner of Church and Gerrard on my way to the gym, I turned RIGHT back around, went home, changed into my running clothes and decided to run outdoors instead. There is no sense in wasting a BEAUTIFUL morning inside of a gym when you can appreciate the world around you.
  • that i live so close to the financial district where the big businesses who own the pretty office towers clean off the sidewalks after snowfalls, not like the city of toronto who haven't cleaned off the side walk in front of John Innes C.C. on Sherbourne. What's up with that?!?!? - but back to being positive, it's such a stark difference - i work down there in the week and it's so busy and running down there on a Saturday morning, it's sooo peaceful. Makes you stop and LOOK at the buildings and the surroundings.
  • i have a kickass little brother. He's playing in a volleyball tournament at Ryerson this weekend, across the street from our house. I went over to see him after my run and watched him play a bit. I wonder where he got all that athletic ability from and I am always in awe at how warm and caring he is to his friends and family.

nothing like the sun shining to make you want to get out and enjoy it!

I have been contemplating going for a run outside because, oh no, it's -12ÂșC. But hell, you have inspired me to just do it. I enjoy running outside much more so than the treadmill. Here I go! :)

It's so great that you and your bro are so close. :)

Hope you had a wonderful outdoor run! Posts like this really make me wish I liked running, because it would be really nice to just put on a pair of shoes and head outdoors on a whim like that. Ah well, the snow will clear soon and then I'll get out there with my bike :)
