Ran through the snow under a full moon tonight

It was cold, below zero. Snow. Ice. Wind. Lame time for running.

It was late, 7, dark.

I am having a trying week, editting tiny notes is more mind numbing than it appears.

My weekend was not restful, skiing, drinking, friends, laughing, snoring roommates, movies. Awesome though.

It was hard to go running. The first five minutes were cold. I felt dumb. I slipped on some ice. Then I just started running.

The moon was out. It was full and bright, the snow was white. I ran fast, and it was the perfect decision. The clouds drifted, the trees flashed by, and I was happy.

Remember that, the doubts never last, and no one ever regrets that run they pushed themselves for.

About adventuresunplugged

The world is a really cool place. I moved to Zurich almost three years ago to start my PhD, and have really enjoyed the different opportunites living close to the Swiss alps offered. This blog is about some of my adventures, climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, traveling... life in general! Wow, haven't updated this bad boy in some time! While the above is still true I have gone on to finish the PhD, so that is Dr Unplugged to you. I also have landed a job in Switzerland and will be shortly moving to Geneva. Clearly I have some adventures ahead left to explore with you guys along for company!
