Another week down and another week closer to......ummmm......next week!!!
Contemplated a "thankful" or "gratitude" post since NO ONE on my FB is touching on any of the things they are thankful for this month.....
Jenn's quicklist ....family, running, health, friends, security, music, wine, sex, and candy. That pretty much sums it....and not necessarily in that order:)
It is WINTER in Minnesota! Snow on the ground. Cold, windy, slippery. According to my recent driving record, and in the words of my husband, I need to be CAUTIOUS in these conditions.....aka drive like an old lady..... I have ZERO incidents RUNNING on ice but slightly more than zero.. (or maybe slightly less than 10).. driving on ice...
It was deer hunting opener this weekend and I'm married to a deer hunter. He gets VERY excited for this time of year. SO excited that I receive texts like this from his deer stand.
Apparently things autocorrect to "porn" on his phone....Laughing as he just got this new phone and thinks he will just "talk" to text all of his text messages now.....I think NOT. My son LOVED spending the weekend out with his dad bathing himself in animal urine and talking about bikes and porn and corn?.....
If someone made a magazine like this, I would have one Christmas present out of the way....#deerporn
Hockey season is HERE. Oh my word, I have just finished my schedules and I seriously can't think past one day at a time. I have a daughter who plays for HS, a daughter in 14UA (no teams here so we have to travel to the metro-which is ONLY 6 hours away) and a son who's a Squirt A. I think it's like 14 practices a week at 3 different rinks ranging from 5:30 am to 9:00 pm and an ENORMOUS amount of games and travel. I'm super excited though!! Really really excited to watch them and travel with some super hockey families!!!
Running is going fairly well. I'm not running a whole lot of miles yet....Keeping things relatively unstructured until December when I will start Boston training!! I ran 10 miles at 7:39 pace earlier in the week which felt really good and then 8@ 8:08 pace which did NOT feel good at all and then 12 @7:50 with 30 minutes of that at 7:20 today. I think I will be in a pretty good place to start training. Not exactly sure of my goals other than I'm certain I want a PR:) I'm currently writing my plan so I have something official to throw away after about 4 weeks-ha! Those who know me will "get" that;) I'm going to jump back on Daily Mile here as soon as I figure out where my profile went!
I had a wonderful weekend filled with HS girls and hockey scrimmages and a little shopping trip with 2 good friends! Lots of laughs. Lots of coffee.....not much shopping as it seems we weren't the only people who thought it would be a good idea to go shopping on deer opener........just us and about 1,000,000,000 other women. No patience for this!!! My time is too valuable and better spent at Panera:)
Keeping with the random flowing randomness that is basically ALL of my posts.....
Really felt a spark when a very special friend ran a race this weekend:) A solid strong race that left me beaming for her!!! Excited to be training at the same time as her again:) And for BOSTON!
Reese had her CC banquet tonight! She received her Varsity letter as a 7th grader and just so proud of her!
So very excited to have a dear friend come to visit me in Minneapolis this weekend!!! Lots to catch up on and a chance to run around the lakes and suck down the Starbucks!!!
And that's a wrap:)
