I spent the morning/afternoon desperately searching for Hannukah candles (came up empty) and at the movies. The temps plummeted and some freezing rain coated the driveway.
I figured I’d just try. Grabbed the trash and was like uh-oh, this is really iced over — but then the road itself was fine. I might have tried for more, but I didn’t want to worry about the roads icing up as it got dark. I just took it nice & easy & concentrated on staying upright.
I’d originally planned on running in the neighborhood, but since most of the snow/ice was gone, I just had to take advantage of clear paths and go run at the park again. Sorry, Bandit!
Nothing remarkable about this run, unless you consider the fact that the first three miles were almost all at the same pace. Snow is supposed to be coming back, ice maybe too, so I’m glad I got out here while I still could.
I don’t normally run three days in a row. A snowstorm was headed our way the next day, and I hadn’t run with Bandit in a while. I had to take advantage of clear roads while I could!
It was a really nice day for a New Year’s Day race. Not too cold, no snow or ice on the roads (but still a little snow on the ground). Chatted with friends I don’t get to see too often, and others that I do.
Oddly enough, Darlene put her bag next to mine . . . without knowing that it was my bag!
I wish I could say I started the year with another PR, but I didn’t. But I enjoyed the “race” and the company — that’s really what it’s mostly about, right?
Favorites of the week
We started out Monday with a movie, and ended 2016 with a movie:”Rogue One” — Mr. Judy enjoyed it — I thought it was entertaining but didn’t live up to the hype; and “Lion” — I enjoyed it; Mr. Judy liked it but found it a little too slow.
Actually, we also watched “The Secret Lives of Pets” on NYE — I thought the beginning was just hilarious, and most of the rest just mildly amusing — but you’ll probably enjoy it if you’re a furmom/dad.
I talked a few friends into running this half. And they talked a few more friends into it. It’s going to be epic!
There were several of these trivets for Hannukah — one that looked like the boys (Simba & Gizmo), above, and one that looked like Bandit. They’re by the same artist that did the print of Chester after he passed. There was also a pair of small heart earrings.
And that’s a wrap
Let’s get the conversation started:
Did you make it to midnight?
Any New Year’s races?
Have you nailed down your 2017 goals yet?
