You Don't Want To Miss This Noxgear Giveaway

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Noxgear. All opinions expressed are my own and honest in nature. Use code AMYGLASS and save 35%. 

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.

Just Get Outside And Run

Since my last snowy adventure on the Appalachian Trail (you can read that here) I haven't been back out running. I don't mind (so much) the cold on the trail, but running in the cold on the road, just hasn't seemed like fun. And, I'm pretty much over the treadmill at the moment.

So I've been cross training

But, with an upcoming race, I know I need to get some mileage in.

So today, I forced myself outside.
The temps were the low 30's so it wasn't terribly cold, but I had to give myself a pep talk to get out there. I wasn't feeling 100% (pesky hormones!)

But I'm glad I forced myself outside.

It was slow.

That's ok.

It wasn't necessarily easy.

That's ok.

Because, I got myself dressed, out the door, and ran. And today, that was exactly what I needed.

How about you? Did you take time for yourself today?

  1. Some good points here. When the weather isn't being too agreeable, it can be difficult to get yourself out there. But it's important to do it! Nothing beats a run outside. Looks like you saw some great views while out, too.

  2. Cross training! Sounds nice!Love your pictures!
