Three Things Thursday

1. I have been slacking on my hip PT exercises! Opps.

2. Morning vs. Evening running?? I am really seeing no difference between the two right now as it is dark at both times and cold out!

3. I heard Starbucks has a Gingerbread Latte - has anyone tried it? I was thinking of getting one tomorrow!!

It has been a busy week and I am ready for the weekend!
Happy Thursday!

mmmmm Gingerbread... I think I would want to try that before the Egg Nog. YUMMERS!! Will let you know if I test it.

It is ALWAYS dark.. UGH!

People are excited about the gift exchange idea. Time to put the thinking caps on. I know Beth/Velma wants to help too..

Ya my personal preference would be "While there's light out Runner" but apparently that's not an option if you work a normal 8-5er.

There's a HUGE advantage to running in the evenings. I'm awake!

As strange as it sounds coming from a Southern Californian, I am HUGE hockey fan. I was in Buffalo last winter on a business trip and an associate and I saw the Sabres beat the Blues, which was just fine becuase Traitor Paul Kariya was plays for the Blues. I wanted a Connolly jersey, but they were sold out....

I've actually been to Buffalo a few times. My youngest son used to row each year at St. Catherines, ON, so we would fly into Buffalo and drive across the border. I've done a fair amount of travel in that area - drove once from Niagara, ON to Boston on I-90, and then once on I-81 from Canada (Ottawa, ON) through Syracuse and on down to Philadelphia. That is a beautiful part of the country!

I am most definitely a morning runner. I'm so pooped at night, I pretty much have to be dragged into my sneakers. Mornings all the way.

Morning runs are easier to motivate...evening runs are just hard...at least for me!

Heard about the Gingerbread Latte but haven't tried it yet...

The difference is that in the evening it's just a Little bit warmer! ha, well, here at least. :)

Haven't tried ANY of the holiday Lattes yet! ehh, slacking.

I prefer to run in the a.m. because it's the best way to start the day! Your workout is done, you have no excuses (HAPPY HOUR) to avoid putting it off or not doing it at all and it energizes you to start your day off on the right foot!

I had my first Sbux "red cup" beverage yesterday. Haven't tried the gingerbread latte yet.

Have a great weekend!

Mmmm Gingerbread Latte- sounds good! Well here in Melbourne Australia, we're gearing up for a very hot summer ahead, with temperatures for this week forecast in the low 30's every day- sorry, that's 86+ degrees in farenheit! So I'm looking at morning runs this week as a much more enjoyable option! Except that I've got a wicked heel blister right now, and really don't relish the idea of even putting my runners on tomorrow morning! :o)
Nice to meet you!!
