There's nothing like good friends who will ask you to run 7 miles with them on a day when you'd like nothing more than to stay inside and cuddle with a warm blanket and hot chocolate.
Happy girls after 6.63 miles in very cold, very wet conditions.
In defense of our sanity: it wasn't raining very hard when we set out on this run. However, there were points when it was raining so hard that I was really wishing someone had given me a face mask for Christmas this year. Maybe next year.
