This was the scene yesterday morning as I was pulling out of my driveway. Yes. That is snow on October 4th. Who does that? Especially when I am supposed to run 20 miles.
I did the first 8 on the treadmill at the gym because you can’t pay me to run on icy sidewalks in the dark and then Rachelle met me at the gym and ran the last 12 with me outside. At one point in the canyon we just had to laugh because it was hailing so hard we couldn’t really open our eyes. It actually turned out to be a great 20 miles with an average pace of 7:51. I am just happy I didn’t come home with frostbite (I was in shorts of course and forgot my gloves in the car. I will never let that happen again).
Paige came over a little while later and we got to spend the day together.
She even came with lunch ready for me to eat. She had leftovers from the dinner she made the night before and had the brilliant idea of giving them to me. I inhaled this, it was so good.
First snow fall of the year requires a hot chocolate run and I don’t know how to go into a gas station without buying a diet coke anymore so I had both (don’t worry, I drank a gallon of water too).
Some random errands.
I had a late night dinner with a really good friend. We went to kind of a fancy restaurant (remember fancy to me is anything that costs more than Subway) and she even had reservations for us.
We split the pork tenderloin and pork tacos and we both couldn’t stop talking about how good it was (especially those garlic mashed potatoes).
Just a block away was the Pie Bar and we both really wanted to try it out. We thought they would offer slices of pie but it was kind of like a pie mousse dessert. The sea salt caramel on top was the best part.
I am most definitely sleeping in this morning. I hope you get to sleep in one or both days this weekend!
PS good luck to everyone running the St. George Marathon today… I hope the weather is awesome for you!
True feelings about snow?
Last restaurant that you ate at?
What is your weekend run? Are you looking forward to it?
