Winter Scenes From My Run

I’m in a new place, so this means my runs are looking a little different these days.

Not as many cacti.

You get Double Fit Technology and 100% confidence when you dress in Katie K Active. I’ve been wearing these clothes since the summer and am still in love with these looks. The capris became my go-to this fall when the temps cooled off. What do I like about KatieK? They care about looking fashionable, even while you are working hard. That’s especially nice when you are already a bit conscious about being a non-traditional athlete. I like that I can go from a run to the store and not look like I just went for a run. Plus Size workout clothes

Okay, NONE.

Things are looking a bit unusual around here for me and I’m loving it!

We got a bit of snow last week, but me being me: I did not go run in it.

It was pretty to look at and I saw plenty of hardcore runners out getting in the miles. Nice job, my NOVA neighbors!

But me? I left the snow play for the kids and kept myself warm inside.

We left our old treadmill in Arizona, so I’m currently mill-less. #WhompWhomp  So if I want to run, it’s outside I’ll need to go.

When the weather finally warmed up (because no, I just don’t do cold!), I ventured outside. A friend suggested a nearby lake with a nice long loop. It was fabulous!

I keep looking around my new to me lake loop thinking how gorgeous it will be in the spring and summer.


The trees, oh my word, the trees! I’ll have shade for the first time in forever.

This means I won’t feel like I have to get up at 4 am to run before the brutal sun. Having a little shade means I get to sleep in.

Score one for Virginia.

This was a first for me as well. A dog wearing booties because it was a little chilly out.

How cute is that?!

And I think these are geese, yes? There were a lot of them all around the lake.

This is NOT Arizona, y’all. Ha!

How does your winter running look these days?

  1. I always think running in the snow is magical, especially if it isn’t below zero, I love winter running, but I am starting to wish for spring!

  2. As much as I hate running when i’s cold out, I hear it does feel a bit easier. Although I like summer and do not mind running in the heat. But you will have gorgeous weather up that way come spring. Enjoy!

  3. Love exploring new trails to run! Can’t wait to see pictures of the lake this spring and summer from you.

  4. We have a cactus…in a pot on the window sill….and I think it’s dead. That looks like a lovely lake loop! Shade is a game changer when it heats up, and it will….just not now.

  5. I love that lake view, just beautiful! My running routes lately have been pretty residential…need to get to the trails soon!

  6. That looks like such a lovely place to run. Why did you leave the mill? Is this a temporary move? Because you’re also going to be dealing with a lot of humidity in the summer. Just sayin’.

    Hard to tell from your photo — they actually look like ducks, not geese — but seriously — you haven’t seen geese? Or were you just being sarcastic?

    • No really, I don’t think I’ve ever lived where geese hang out. Either not by water or too hot maybe? Certainly not in AZ or my parts of TX.

      TM was left due to it being 13 years old and weighing a TON. Figured it was cheaper to leave it and replace it when we got here. Just haven’t made that leap yet!

  7. I have a lake loop I run as well…but have not been there much this winter because it’s been so cold (Iowa…’nuff said). I don’t have much for scenic running pics from recent runs because most of them have happened on the ‘mill (#boring)

  8. Yup, geese. We have plenty of them in Boulder, and I have to dodge around goose dropping to get to the running path I like. That is one time I won’t run head up because I have new shoes!

  9. Because most of my favorite paths are icy, I seem to be limited. It hasn’t been the coldest of winters but it seems to be the grayest.

  10. Haha! I’m with you on the no snow running deal. If it snows down here in the ‘sip, I’ll go out for a walk or short run then that’s enough to last me until the next year or two when it decides to come back! I imagine the change of scenery for you is quite drastic! I didn’t post any winter running scene pics because for the most part, frankly, they don’t look any different than any other time of the year. It’s been in the 70s around here lately!

    Hope you’re getting settled in and enjoying the adventures of a new city!

  11. That lake looks beautiful!

  12. looks like your new surroundings are gorgeous! i cant imagine cold weather running all of the time.
