First Day of Winter Run

I am not a cold weather person.  I define cold as anything below 60 and super cold as anything below 50.  So, I am especially pumped that the last two days have been in the 70s.  It was windy yesterday, but I take wind over cold any day!  Welcome to West Texas Father Winter, we (by we I mean me and my hubby) don't need snow for Christmas.  The kids need to take those Nerf guns outside on Christmas Day! 

So to celebrate this beautiful weather, the girls and I met up at the perk to do a little running.  Danielle and Tayler tried to send this old lady into cardiac arrest by running the first mile in 8:36.  I had to SLOW down.  So, I ran by my lonesome and added another minute to each mile to finish my run.  Danielle and Tayler have decided to run the BIG D marathon in Dallas in April.  They're rockstars! I'm just gonna play along and see how far I get.  I'm still trying to build up my base mileage and speed up my pace.  That stinkin' knee injury really set me back.  It is so hard to get back into the rhythm. 

After the perk, we headed to Einstein's Bagels.  It was a first for me and mine was really delish.  Apparently, I was so famished from my run, that I didn't want to take the time to snap a pic.  Then a quick trip to Academy to pick out items for our personal Christmas list.  Santa, I have been a really good girl this year!

Enjoy your first day of  winter!


  1. I couldn't run a mile in 8:36 if I was hooked up to a Corvette!!
