On my way...

Only a few comments on my last post??? Hmmmm note to self...don't talk about yourself naked on your blog.

So I am wearing clothes and unfortunately staying quite bundled up as we have snow on the ground and temps in the 30's. BOO!! Saturday I was determined to run 13 miles and excited that I had connected with Blonde Ponytail about joining me. Saturday morning came and Blonde Pony wasn't feeling so hot so I was on my own. Well I thought of many things to do until 12:00 and that point I knew I could not put it off any longer. So I drove in the snow to the gym and started running. I watched plenty of Home Improvement shows and left dripping wet. 13 miles and 2:06 and I was done!! I felt good but felt like I should get an EMZ sticker or something!! It was my longest run since the Portland Marathon!!

Sunday was a rest day and a great time at church, great sermon helping me stay focused of God's gifts!!

Today was the kids first day of break and it was LONG and crazy! My One and Only was driving me batty...so praying that I wake up with more patience and a smile tomorrow!
I did squeeze in 5 miles on my mill at home. This is always a last resort...so old school! Hoping to do the same or more tomorrow! Getting excited for Christmas...the kids have a big surprise coming that should be fun!

Also a big Welcome new bloggy members! I would love a comment to learn more about you and your journey!!
ONLY 26 MILES LEFT....to 1,000!!!

congrats on 13 treadmill miles! I don't think I have the patience to go that long, although I'm going to have to start doing longer runs indoors soon.

Hope you have fun with the kids, I imagine it's an adjustment for everyone the first few days!

Only a marathon left! Sweet!
(Don't worry about the small # of comments... people aren't as busy blog hopping these busy holiday prep days...)

Don't forget to pick a day next week for a run w/ your kids at my place!

26 left? That's all? Yay! Go you! I am definitely not meeting my goal this year... but hopefully next year! Good job on the treadmill miles!

I'm in awe of anyone who can get more than 6 miles on a TM. Well done!
