The view from my deck this morning! A gorgeous Minnesota hoarfrost! Yes, pronounced "whore"! My husband was thrilled to wake up to a beautiful hoar....Anyway:)
So, just a quick update post as I'm frantically packing and getting ready for a big hockey weekend 6 hours away! We're leaving at the crack of dawn!
A few tidbits of my life happenings this week....
Parent teacher conferences were tonight. My son made a little family history book! I LOVE this picture!
It says "My mother's name is Jen. She works at the dentist. My mom licks to run and shop." Ha ha-SO true! The picture is me (sporting some serious thunder thighs and a black running hat) running down a paved road. He even drew the yellow line in the center! I really got a big smile out of this.
I got my hair done on Tuesday. We decided to go dark with red violet dimension...It is taking a little getting used to. Perhaps when I get to Target and can get the black lipstick and white face paint that goes with it, it'll grow on me. Actually, it doesn't really look that different and it's still long. I'm addicted to my ponytail right now and just can't whack it off just yet!
My last 3 runs have been outside. They've been fabulous! I think I must look like a freak when people pass me because I'm practically dancing down the road I'm so excited to be back out there. Temps have been in the high teens and just really light snow! Tonight was supposed to be tempo but we have no paths and they are still scraping the roads. I decided to move it to tomorrow when I can run on a nice path along the Mississippi River on our travels! Tonight I strapped on the Garmin and just ran my 4 mile loop twice. Didn't look at it once and tried to just run by feel. My legs are loving being back outside. My average pace was 7:33 and it felt so comfortable. This is around marathon pace for me and reminds me of how much I prefer marathons to 10K's.....
It is pathetic that I'm SO excited about going to Trader Joe's. I love grocery shopping! Also pretty pumped about hitting the Nordstrom Rack! Should be a fabulous weekend of hockey, good friends, good food, and hopefully these on a clearance rack for $14.
Ummm-not likely but I better just go check those racks anyway, right????
So-this was a bit of a nobrainer post but wanted to say hello and especially wanted to wish Heather GOOD LUCK on her first marathon this weekend! I'm so excited for the feeling she's gonna have when she crosses that finish line!!
I'll be out of commission for a few days! Will try to keep up a bit on my phone! Have a wonderful weekend!
