December 1

This what what I woke up to this morning:




It was a snowy run (3.1 miles) this morning which made it slow going but it was beautiful out!! Thank goodness I signed up for the gym yesterday! Not sure how much longer I will be able to run outside every morning!

Jury Duty went well - I sat around for 4 hours and didn't get picked so I am at work today!

I went back to my college last night to watch the Women's basketball team play. They played well and won! As I sat and watched the team play, I realized I didn't really miss playing but I did feel the urge to coach! Maybe there will be coaching in my future...

And finally - November running total = 50.1 miles!

24 days till Christmas! Happy Tuesday!

Yay! One year I remember it snowed on December 1st and it was a Saturday and we were putting our decorations up. It was perfect.

You would make a great coach! :)

First snowy run of the season! How fun.

Jury duty, on the other hand, not so much fun.

They are calling for now in NJ this week- but I hate winter so I am not all excited about it :(

Coaching is a blast- I coach softball and love it!

Morgan said...

Ok I'll admit it... the first snow is always the most beautiful and breathtaking and I maybe, kinda, sorta miss it. But don't tell anyone!!!

Yay for coaching!!!

Brian said...

A nice Snowy 5k! Send some up my way, but I know its coming anyway

Brian said...

Wow! Snow! We don't see that too often here in Florida, but I'll have 2 weeks in St. Louis over the holidays to try out my cold weather gear. The weather is absolutely beautiful here these days. I just have to get healthy!

Teamarcia said...

EEK! But I guess it is that time. We're due for snow here tomorrow. Kids are excited...me not so much...although it is festive and pretty. Congrats on 50 miles!

Lisa from Lisa's Yarns said...

Wow - snow! We haven't gotten any yet which is so weird for Minnesota. I like the nice weather we've had, but at the same time it kind of doesn't feel like Christmas is coming without it!

Mel-2nd Chances said...

hmmm, can't say i'm really looking forward to the snow. Like it for Christmas day, and ya, that's about it. Good for you getting out there though, and congrats on the 50 miles!

Glenn Jones said...

Beautiful! I love those type of snowstorms where you have those great big flakes of snow that gently drift down from the sky. I love the stillness. *That* type of weather I really do miss. It's just he shoveling an the thaw/freeze cycles that I wouldn't.

Thanks for the nice words and thoughts J. The family appreciates your thoughts.

Jon Gilchrist said...

solid running volume for November!

trialsoftraining said...

Coaching, yah?? I think you'd be great at that!
