A picture from the beginning of my run. Does anyone else have the problem of their iPhone shutting off when it is too cold outside? Maybe it is just my phone but during any of my cold runs I know I will have my music and camera for the first half of my run but then it just turns off when it gets too cold. It did this today but I did get a few pictures before it did that.
I’m glad that I brought one warm running outfit yesterday when I was packing because for some reason I just assumed that St. George wouldn’t be that cold (probably because I usually die of heat on every run while I am here). When my alarm clock went off this morning and I checked the weather, it said that it was 20 degrees this morning. I was very grateful for my tights and gloves!
I tried to take a really cool running photo but such a photo wasn’t going to happen this morning. After a mile or two I warmed up and the only thing that was cold during this run were my toes which wasn’t too bad. Sometimes I look at temperatures in different areas of the US during the year and when I see what some of you are running in right now—> WOW.
Gotta love some different scenery.
I found the course of the next half marathon I want to do and ran the last 4ish miles of the course. AKA the hardest part of the race, hills and hills and hills. Every time I do this race I wonder why in the world they have to be cruel and put steep hills in during the last few miles but for some reason I enjoy it. 7.4 miles with music the first half and thoughts about things I want to work on in life for the second half.
Brooke woke up right before I walked in the door so I gladly accepted the request to snuggle up together. It took about 13 minutes to feel my ears again ha.
And then we were off to California. Brooke needs to be there by a certain time so we left in a hurry.
Many of our road trips include portions with Andrew and I telling the other something and the other person not agreeing with the statement and then googling it. Turns out that Mt. Everest really does grow each year
One stop in Primm.
Waiting in line for food because we were hangry.
And Andrew not very excited about our food options ha. Not the biggest fans of the options but we should have planned food better.
At least we had the best variety of Kisses—> the candy cane ones are the best by far (followed by Hugs).
Sure is going to be weird without our little sidekicks for a week.
Please share any random facts you have learned lately and I will share them with Andrew while he is driving ha!
Who else is going to be away from home for the holidays?
What was the temperature during your morning run?
Anyone else’s phone shut off during winter runs?
