Running2Live: It’s really stinking cold

Okay, I have to be honest, I haven’t been running these past few weeks. But I have to say it has been really stinkin’ cold. So I thought I would share I few pics I’ve taken lately.Snow angels

I’ve made a few snow angels.

I’ve taken Puppy for a few long walks.


I’ve taken a few pretty pictures.

Next up: Zumba

Since it is still cold, I’m going with a friend to a Zumba class. We’ll see how it goes.

What have you been doing to stay active this winter? Clearly I could use a few ideas.

    I belong to a YMCA that is 3/4 of a mile from my house. You know what they say about “location, location, location”. I go by it on my way to work, so I pack my lunch and breakfast and stop there nearly every day. Some days it’s the treadmill, others it’s a spin class. I’ve made a lot of friends there, we’re very irreverent about each other’s exercise habits and clothing (“Did the kleenex get loose in that load???”) and generally have a good time. On the weekends I walk with my husband along the coast or on a bike path unless the wind chill is really dreadful. If I don’t do SOMETHING depression sinks in in a major way and the seizure follow behind.

    Ann, Thanks for your comment. If the treadmill is helping to keep your seizures at bay take a pic next time you are at the Y and submit it to the one day of treatment project.
    Thanks for your note and the support!

    Similarly I cycle to keep ep under control. Started running more recently and did the Strava 10k comp. unfortunately had a seizure on one run, but it’s been good inspiration.
