So much for the beautiful snowfall we got last night! It’s all gone thanks to the rain that has been falling since early morning. It’s 49 here right now, crazy that yesterday at this time it was about 20!
Since both boys are fighting colds, we opted to skip a holiday party last night, and we had a relaxing evening by the fire. It was just what we needed. My husband was away on a business trip all last week, and I think we all needed some down time.
We sat by the fire, had takeout Chinese, and played Candyland. I was also super glad to get in a run yesterday morning. Even though it was pretty cold, 20° (felt like 10° with wind chill), but it was a fabulous little run.
I love running in cold weather. As long as you are dressed properly, I much prefer it to running in the heat. I am glad that my Saucony Ethereal jacket still fits at 21 weeks, because layered over a long sleeve tech shirt, it was perfect. I sported by balaclava to complete the outfit and was perfectly comfortable.
I took a few walk breaks, but it just felt so good to get out and move—you all know how I feel! At this time of year, things can get a little stressful; and running is the perfect outlet!
