The Coldest Run Ever.

IMG_1069

This morning’s run wins a new accolade: it was officially the coldest run I’ve ever done. 12 degrees, with a “feels like –2 degrees” situation from Weather.com due to the wind chill? Yeah, it was really freaking cold. But you know what? It was worth it to spend the morning looking at views like this. Even when it’s this cold… the Continue Reading …

Hello from the polar vortex, aka Washington DC! It’s nice and sunny out today, but MAN is it cold out there and the sidewalks are still a mess of snow, too. I walked over to one of my favorite coffee shops this morning to do some work after being cooped up at home all day yesterday, and my face nearly froze off on the 1/2 mile walk here.

Hello from a very snowy DC – it’s really coming down out there! GW is closed today for the weather so the Basic Nutrition class I’m teaching was cancelled this morning; more time to catch up on emails and other work are not a bad thing this week! Lots going on, both with blogging stuff (the Winter Shape Up starts next week – so excited!) Continue Reading …

When my alarm went off a little after 6 this morning for my running date, I REALLY wasn’t feeling it. I’m tiiiiired, I whined to myself. I probably shouldn’t have had those 2 glasses of red wine at happy hour last night, either. I checked my phone: freezing rain and 27 degrees?! Great. I debated texting my buddy Sokphal to see if she still Continue Reading …

A Freezing Run, Lunch & Teaching!

Well, my friends, I did it: I braved the extreme cold here in DC yesterday and got in a run. A solo run, even! Apparently wanting a run to be over quickly leads to speed. I’ll have to remember that. ;) Brrrr… no photos, all business for this one. Got it done! As for today, enjoying a rest day. Back to running tomorrow! Continue Reading …

A Freezing Run + Exciting Running News!

Hello and happy Monday! I got in my first run of the new year yesterday – a freezing cold and rainy ~13-ish miler with my friends Kathleen and Rachel. On Saturday night, the forecast for Sunday morning was looking bleak – high 30s and freezing rain. Yikes. I texted Kathleen to make sure we were still a go, and we were. Good thing I have Continue Reading …
