I admit it.
I laughed at you!
when it was time to head out for my afternoon run - and the thermometer read 34 degrees -
Now, I know that for many of you, 34 degrees is a heat wave this time of year. But for this born and raised Florida Girl, it feels like hell - if hell were a frozen tundra and not a fiery inferno!
So, I skipped my Tuesday run - but I did get in a 11.5 mile run this weekend in preparation for the Celebration Half Marathon in
(insert freak-out voice)
less than 3 weeks!
I feel so unprepared, because by this time prior to my last (and only) half marathon, I had already completed a 14 mile run. Of course, I also spent the 3 weeks prior to that half marathon, loopy on drugs, lying on the sofa with my broken hand in a splint. So.... maybe I'm not so unprepared after all!
Meanwhile, I had a birthday! I turned 47 on the 2nd, and my daughter, Gracie, hit the big SEVEN on the 6th! So, we had a shared birthday party on the 4th!
I received this little baby just in time for the unseasonable cold weather.
|*adorable grandson not included!|
On her actual Birthday, I took my Gracie to Build-a-Bear. We've been doing that since her first birthday.
It is kind of sad to see my baby getting so big!
Oh, and we got to meet my son, Caleb's girlfriend:
This is his first serious gf - and we are pretty sure she's a keeper! I really liked her... plus, she used to run in college, so WIN!
Question: Are you running in these freezing temps?
