1. This week the mornings have been really cold and I just have not had the desire to get up and run. Especially this morning. I was able to get out Tuesday morning for 3.6 miles and yesterday for a fast 2 miler in the misty rain. But this morning when the alarm went off at 5am, my body said no. So I rolled over and went back to sleep for another 45 minutes. The extra sleep was glorious but at the same time it was a beautiful morning that I missed out on. Weirdly enough, I have been really wanting to run mile repeats...maybe this weekend...??
2. Last week my parent's cat got a hair cut. Her winter fur coat is so thick that when summer time comes around her fur gets all knotted. So my mom had her groomed so she would be more comfortable! And she really is - she loves not having the fur! Isn't she cute??? (Before and after shots below)
3. 30 days ago, I wrote about participating in Amanda's 3 Changes Challenge where I said I would a) stop eating candy, b) make an effort to connect with friends and c) get rid of clothes that do not fit anymore. Well I am proud to say that I haven't eaten any candy! Not a single piece! It was hard at first but then I just kept on going and I feel so much better without it! I have been eating my fair share of cookies and cake though! I have made attempts to connect with friends but work and family stuff has gotten in the way. And lastly, I have nice big pile of clothes on my bedroom floor that I will be donating! It feels good to get rid of the clothes that didn't exactly make me look that good because they didn't fit - it was like a mini episode of "What Not to Wear" in my bedroom!
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend!! Happy Thursday!!
