Anyway, Adam gave us the weekend to get the race done. I waited until Sunday to get my run in as Saturday was crazy busy with kids basketball. Sunday the kids and hubs all went ice fishing so I got the whole day to myself! I am so lucky! I got to do the always fun and exciting grocery shopping in the morning! The best part was, I was all alone so I spent the regular $140 rather than the $220+ that I spend when the family comes along.
It was a beautiful day in Maine yesterday. Sunny and 35 ish. Just perfect for running outdoors. The ice and snow had just about all melted away from previous storms so the road were clear and waiting for me. I did my long loop around my house which is pretty hilly and 6 miles. I over dressed a little because it was windy which sometimes made it cold but most of the time I was a little warm. I'd rather be warm than cold while running so that was fine. 6 miles 56:56.
Here's a pic of me with the race bib on my ipad. The picture sucks because I took it with my ghetto phone because no one was home (see ice fishing above ^^) to take the photo. So after about 15 shitty shots, I managed to get this
It was more of a sweat your thorns off run for me--I had a insulated shirt, then the under armour jacket you see, hat, gloves (which were stuffed in my pants for most of the run), capri spandex under long running pants and compression socks. But it was awesome to be outside in the fresh air. There is nothing like running outside in crisp weather.
Did I mention that I was by myself? All alone? No one yelling Momma a million and one times in a row. It was bliss. I wish every winter in Maine could be like this one. Or like yesterday specifically.
Thank you, Adam, for hosting. Now please pick my name for some cool prize.
