300 Days of Running and a Never-Ending Winter

I feel like each week I say the same things – this winter is never-ending. I am so ready to be able to run outside without Yaktrax and/or just without a foot of snow.

But even though winter is still here, I’m still running, so that’s something to celebrate. And this week, I hit 300 days of my running streak! Here’s what the week looked like:

Sunday: 5 miles outside! The week actually started out pretty mild. Well, it was cold (20s) but Sunday and Monday there was NO snow in the sky for my runs, which made the runs even better. And because it had not  snowed all weekend, the roads (not sidewalks) were clear for my runs! This meant I got in some enjoyable outdoor runs before heading back inside for the treadmill.

Monday: 5.43 miles – some were done outside – i found  snowy trail that was GREAT for a slow, peaceful and not too deep run – and I also did a few miles on the treadmill.

Tuesday: 4.6 miles on the treadmill – woke up to 6+ inches of snow, and more coming down

Wednesday: 5.25 miles on the treadmill

Thursday: 5 treadmill miles

Friday: 5.5 treadmill miles 

Saturday:  5.8

Weekly mileage: 36.58 mi

Running streak days: 303

In non-running related news, I got my first haircut during COVID! It was so long that I was able to chop it all off and donate it to Locks of Love. Check out the difference! (Sorry, blurry picture and not the same shirt)

Some questions for you:

  • Have you donated your hair before?
  • What are you looking forward to this week?

I’m linking up with Deborah and Kim for the Weekly Run Down.

  1. That’s such the correct term – the never ending winter! February has been brutal with all the snow, wind, ice and freezing cold weather.

    That’s amazing that you were able to donate your hair to Locks of Love – what a wonderful gift to give to someone!

  2. Your haircut looks great! Our daughters have donated before, but I have not (I was told they don’t want color-treated hair). When I left for my walk this morning, there were a few flakes in the air but it was almost a full-blown whiteout when I returned … a mere two miles later. Yes, it does feel like it’s never ending.

  4. Woo-hoo Happy 300!!!!! That’s amazing. I’ve done Locks of Love a few times and it always feels extra good knowing that the hair that I don’t need is going to help someone else.

  5. Wow, your haircut looks great, and someone will be VERY glad of that beautiful hair donation!
    My son just auditioned for CIM- virtually, by Zoom. If not for Covid we would have been up there this weekend auditioning in person- I’m not sad we missed out on that! Coming from Florida we would ave froze to death.
    Congrats on your streak! 303 days is a long one!
