It is a good thing that I didn’t look out my window this morning before getting in my car to leave for my run because if I had the odds are I would have put my sleep mask back on. The warm bed would have won. I don’t actually use a sleep mask but it just sounded cool. Maybe I will though.
Once I got to the meeting spot I was excited (as I was driving there I was the opposite of excited) to run double digits in the freezing temps.
The reasons that I got excited:
It has been way too long since I have gone running with some of my favorite human beings.
A few of us met for 4 miles and then the rest of the group showed up and we did 7 more. I am still kicking myself for not wearing some really awesome Christmas themed outfit.
I have no idea how that guy ran in a tank and shorts.
It snowed almost the entire run (especially in the canyon) and we determined that every mile you run in the snow (or sand) equals 2 regular road/treadmill miles. It was a blast (but really hard) and I hope we keep doing this together this winter.
Running in the snow makes my ankles sore and I did take one fall but considering how often I fall that is pretty good.
I went straight from the run to this:
My sis and her husband put together a big donut, hot chocolate and pajama party. The chocolate ones were the best.
How Brooke eats her donuts. Not a bad method in my humble opinion.
When Brooke took a nap I went to meet up with some friends for lunch. This may look like a salad but really it is two buffalo chicken tacos topped with a ton of lettuce, pico and chips from Tacos 180. I don’t know why I have a Golden Retriever calendar on my tray either.
We hit up the mall for some last minute shopping with my mom and brother.
And tradition #21 was watching Elf with peppermint ice cream (buy some before they don’t sell it anymore) at my sister’s house with everyone.
