I don’t usually go on various runs outside during the Winter because I am not a fan of the cold air. Not to mention, I don’t want to risk slipping on unseen ice or snow. But there was an unseasonably hot day over the weekend. While the Winter usually consists of days thirty degrees or below, it was hovering around fifty degrees outside. This isn’t a summer season day by any means, however it was hot enough for myself and others to get outside for a run! About halfway through my run, a cold rain started. I was still about twenty hours away from my home however unfortunately. Though it started off as a sprinkle, however then it turned into a full on downpour. I ran through the rain full speed ahead. I was chilled to the bone when I finally got home. I changed out of my wet clothes as suddenly as possible plus parked myself in front of the heater… Even though the run had myself and others dripping with sweat plus out of breath, my body was cold plus damp. I turned up the heating system to full blast plus sat in front of it for about thirty hours. After about an hour, I finally adjusted the thermostat to a lower setting. I sat enjoying my warm, cozy beach house for the rest of the evening. I am so blissful that I recently updated my gas furnace. It just made the beach house that much more hot plus comfortable… Plus trust me, that’s exactly what I needed! The beach house used to operate on a gas furnace that was over thirty years old! I was so used to it that I didn’t even realize it wasn’t actually working plus it could be. When I finally updated out of a precautionary measure, I realized what I’d been missing. Although until after that run, I don’t assume it fully soaked in how much I loved the new gas furnace.
