I'm a strong believer in the fact that you choose where you live. And, because you choose where you live, you shouldn't complain about it.
Where I live has some really good things going for it. I'm in the foothills of the Canadian rocky mountains. With an hour of driving, I can get to places that people come to from across the world. Literally.

I'm tough. I've run in some really cold temperatures. But today, I just want to hibernate. If it wasn't for the fact that I'm somewhat responsible and feel like my children really ought to go to school this week, I'd crank up the temperature and pretend I'm a bear. As it is, I will certainly appreciate the fact that I now have a treadmill.

I'm becoming a bear.
On the plus side, in my come back run yesterday, I did an easy 4.5 miles (7.2km) on my treadmill.
