In addition to being a relatively new knitter, timid knitter is also a new runner (essential considering the absolutely extraordinary food we consume at our Tuesday evening soirées). Timid knitter has run in the rain, on the beach, in the wind, amid falling leaves and in the glorious sunshine, but never in the snow for fear of falling. Well not any more!
This morning, timid knitter donned her running pants, laced up her sneakers (when she had her gait analyzed, she requires a “stability” running shoe…(significant? we promise, more later) and took to the streets. What an experience! Only one noteworthy slip, no falls, but better yet, one more thing accomplished! We took a picture of her “run steps” in the lightly-fallen snow to memorialize the occasion.
We can eat the things we love (in moderation)…our bodies need food, but our bodies also need movement (we are incredible machines indeed!). Try to work up a sweat at least once a day, you will be amazed at how good you feel! We’ll shut up now.
