You Don't Want To Miss This Noxgear Giveaway

Whether you workout before work or after work, chances are if you workout outside you'll be working out in the darkness or very dim light.

And one of my major pet peeves is to see runners or walkers or cyclists or really anyone out and about who doesn't make sure that they can be seen.

Because the majority of my workouts are before Hubby goes to work, and usually I'm solo, safety has always been a priority for me. And when I say that I won't run outside in the dark / low light/ fog without my Noxgear, I'm serious.

When The Road Calls

There are some days that the treadmill just won't cut it. You know what I mean? Well today was one of those days. I had planned on attempting my first 5 miler (since injury). And the thoughts of being in my basement, on the treadmill just didn't sound like the way that I wanted to do it.

I had originally planned to meet some friends at 5:30am, but those plans changed. Instead, I was able to run an hour later (hello daylight)  However, I had my (affiliate link) Knuckle Lights ready. I love my knuckle lights and use them quite often. I actually forget I'm even carrying them.

So I got dressed to attempt my 5 miles, opened the door, and it was snowing.

I smiled, kissed Lil Man and Hubby goodbye and
off I went. The first mile or two, the snow was falling at a steady rate. After that it eased up. But it was beautiful, and it was what I needed today.

Nothing like a bone chilling running to clear your head.... :) 

Slower than pre-injury, but I'm trying to focus on each new milestone with this injury. 

So I'm pleased with myself for 5 miles today. And I'm glad that I was able to get outside for today's outdoor workout with the #LJFitChallenge

So, do you exercise outside in the winter?

  1. Good for you! I run outside year round, but I draw the line at zero. Today we're below so it was the mill for me.

    1. I'm with you. The wind chills are below 0 here today... it will be a TM day for me :)
