Here we go...
1. My tiux ambassador package arrived on Thursday!!!
It had a whole stash of goodies in there!
2. Looks like the BAA is starting the bib assignment process!
As I indicated on my GGR Instagram page I was hoping to better this time at the Chicago Marathon, buuuuttt my bladder had other plans. ;)
3. Winter Running is definitely here! Sometimes it takes motivational messages from loved ones and blogger friends to get you out the door, lol.
I wasn't kidding.
So I stopped whining, layered up and protected my face and neck with vaseline. This is the first run so far this winter that I've added a layer of vaseline to my skin. I just absolutely become a crank-a-saurus when I'm cold on the run.
I survived my loopy run (again I did the cleared ice-free hilly bus route). I even had super hot hands and had to take off my mittens! :0 No wonder my hands are beginning to look like crocodile skin.
I refuelled with some fajitas w/mango salsa...mmm!
4. Lola Ludy <3
Ever wonder what your dog does all day when you're at work? Well I think Lola's crazy hair tells the tale for her! LOL. Major bed head!
LOL LOL LOL ---> So, I tried a Christmas gift sweater on Lola today from my MIL and Lola wouldn't even take a single step! Not even when lured by treats to the treat cupboard. I was laughing hysterically and she was not having any part of this sweater business. After I snapped a quick photo, I freed her from her misery. What can I say, she's just not a sweater gal.
5. Snow Day Herb Garden Project! This is what happens when you're not working and have an extra 8 hours on your hands. These herb jars were obviously super quick to set up and I can't wait to see some green sprouting up!
These are my Friday 5 for the week. :) Stay tuned for a race recap of this Sunday's Hypothermic Half Marathon and let's hope it isn't Hypothermic Half Ice Capades like last year! ;) Marg and I are going to run it as a training run and not run all guts out, especially since we are getting ANOTHER storm tomorrow, womp womp.
|We got these super cool toques and backpacks in our race kits! The backpack is very bright orange and I just love it! I'm sure this toque will go on lots of runs with me. ;)|
Thanks for stopping by the GGR blog space and have an awesome weekend!
Who else is running the Hypo 1/2?
What do you do to occupy your time on a snow day?
