Because I can

This morning when I woke up... 17 degrees.

This afternoon.... 24 degrees.

Currently... 19 degrees.

Tomorrow morning when I am supposedly running this 5k Turkey Trot.... expected 15 degrees.

Definitely going to be colder than last year's race....

How tempting it would be to sleep-in and wake to the wonderful smells of a warm Thanksgiving...

But I don't think that is an option... this may very well be my last race of 2007.... I am gonna do it... and I am gonna do it with a smile...

Why?

Because I can!

it's getting cold here, too. flew home this weekend to a few inches of snow.

i'm doing an at-home turkey trot. from the fridge to the couch - multiple loops, though. i'm going for a record. :)

Last winter I found two very positive things about running in freezing temperatures:
1- if you have a crappy run, you've got a built in excuse. Really, in those temps all that matters is that you got out there and ran!
2- on the way home from a freezing cold run it is very important for your body that you stop by Panera (or Starbucks, etc) and have some hot chocolate and a bagel. YUM!

I wish I had gotten up for my 4 miler I had intended on doing...it wasn't even cold...but I overindulged in alcohol the night before...
