Jingle Bell 10K Run

The local Jingle Bell run starts at 10:30 this morning.  Although I have signed up to run - I was going to wait and check conditions this morning before I decided to participate or not.  We were suppose to be in the middle of snow, sleet and rain conditions this morning . . . but that didn't happen.  I don't mind running in rain and I don't mind running in cold or snow . . . but 30 degrees with dropping temperatures and a combination of sleet, rain and snow . . . just doesn't sound like fun.  It looks like there might be a little snow this morning - but the rain, sleet and 8 inches of snow will be starting in the afternoon.  So the race is on for me.

WOW!  this is my first post in December.  I have been super busy at work and not getting home until after 7.  I have also been out of the office a couple of days and and an overnight trip to Chicago - this always means that I seem to have a lot more late evenings at work.  After spending all day on the computer at work - I just haven't had the energy to write a post.  I have been doing pretty good about reading all of your posts . . . I just haven't made any comments  :-(    . . . but I have been thinking about all of you   ;-)

I only have 50 miles left to hit my goal of running 1000 miles this year.  I know I will get it done!

I got a bike trainer for my birthday present - I have only been on it twice - but do love it.

Will report later about the run and life in general.



  1. Good luck today. I was excited to get in a run this morning. It sounded like it was going to be terrible!

  2. Hope the forecast is right and you have a great time.
    Impressive that after such a busy week you did not decide to just stay home under warm blankies with hot cocoa in hand reading a book.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Good luck and yay for the bike trainer :)
