I was determined to brave the cold this morning to get my run in. Luckily it wasn’t as cold out this morning as it was yesterday. I bundled up in sweatpants, t-shirts, a light jacket and made my way out the door. I really appreciated all of your suggestions yesterday morning on what to wear for running in the cold. I am going to need to invest in some spandex, gloves and a headband for future cold mornings.
Once you start running the cold really is not that bad. The only thing I had a problem with was my ears (that’s why headband is #1 on my list). It also helped that before I walked out the door I did 20 or so jumping jacks to warm my body up.
Distance: 4.25 miles
Time: 43 mins 15 secs
I debated this morning to have another warm breakfast or to have some much desired cereal. I went with what I desired: cereal!
In the mix: the last of my bag of Kashi Go Lean Crunch, ½ cup 365 Brand Peanut Butter Puffs, 2 spoonfuls of Applesauce, the last of the jar of Almond Butter, and 3 Strawberries.
I’m so glad I went with what I was craving. I’m sure the warm breakfast would have warmed me up, but this was just as satisfying.
I am registering for my Half Marathon this morning! It’s not until December 6, but I feel as if I am one step closer to it with the registration complete. I paid too much money, no backing out now! If you would have told me a year ago that I was this excited to register to run 13 miles I would have thought you were crazy! So much has changed this year and I think this half marathon will be the perfect way to end this amazing year. After this who knows what I will do next, maybe a triatalon or even a full marathon?!?!? I guess I will just have to wait to see where 2009 will take me! J
