Han Solo (Janathon day 17)
On the coldest day of the year so far, I had planned a very early morning run (official start time 06:10).
It was absolutely freezing, but in a very calm 'everything is frozen' kind of way. The sky was completely clear and moon was shining brightly. Once I was off of the main roads and away from the light polution, my eyes adjusted and a previously hidden skyscape of a million stars revealed itself to me. It was stunning.
Still, it couldn't take away the fact that I was freezing. I wore my Nike Free 3.0 v3's, which are pretty minimal, so my feet had very little in the way of insulation. My face had frozen into it's 'oh fuck it's so cold' expression - I think it is still like it!
I even managed to get to work on time, but then I went for breakfast and arrived at my desk 15 minutes late.
