I love my classroom, not just for what I get to do in it, but for the view. I have four HUGE windows, with evergreens outside, and it looked like a SCREEN SAVER today outside my window.
I was so excited and couldn't wait to get outside, so on my lunch, I put on my red coat and black plaid hat and drove to Caribou to use a gift card for a tasty drink. Mmmmmmmmmmm. Snow. Love. IT.
Stayed at work late to get things done, came home, had an apple with some peanut butter (a little piece of heaven) and changed into my FUN new Nike running pants that I HEART, my Pearl Izumi cool gloves with the blue flower, and my Brooks cold weather running coat. My snow running Nike Storm shoes. My lemon ice lip gloss.
I drove to meet my Soler friends. Lots were there: Dr. John, New Zealand Pat, Ultra Irene, Electric Mike and Jen. We took off!
23 degrees. Ice and blustery wind. A few inches of fresh snow.
I CAN'T FREAKIN' GET ENOUGH OF THIS!
6.66 glorious miles later, I ran with Electric Mike for an average pace of 9:29, through the wind and the snow and the ice and I felt like doing somersaults and making snow angels.
Get out there. Bundle up like Randy on a Christmas Story. Run in the snow with friends, and tell me it's NOT FUN. I dare you.
Warm chocolate milk and a bowl of chili later, and I can't wait for another round.
SNOWSNOWSNOWSNOW I heart snow!
