Food lifestyle change (IT'S NOT A DIET) is going strong.
Polar Bear Run
3 miles ~ around 32 minutes? probably more... I don't run that fast!!
Remember this beautiful lake? Yeah. That was October. I went back there today to run with Art and Amy. I've never met Art, I honestly thought he might be a figment of Amy's imagination. :D He's living and breathing and he's actually quite funny and fun.
The conversation to decide to go has been hilarious. "It's supposed to be cold. Are we still going or should we postpone a week?" "WE HAVE TO GO!" "It will allow me to say, 'I'm not fat, just layered.'" "Do you think we could all just fit on my treadmill?" "Can you say POLAR BEARS?" "Does anyone mind an inch of snow?" "It's snowing like a banshee, this is going to be fun!"
It's freezing cold and snowing like crazy, but we're all dying to get a decent run in and to do it together, plus I wanted to see if Art was real. We all got to the lake in good time. Guess what, there are other crazy runners there too and some families out on the ice skating. That's just weird to see! Amy snapped a quick pic and off we went. Had to shuffle a little in the spots that had ice under the snow, but for the most part, it was pretty good. We had snow all over us, even in our eyelashes. I felt like a kid out playing!!
Great conversation, great company, great fun. Let's see, topics of conversation ranged from: little kids are stinky, do your kids sleep in your bed? a drop shipment of Viagra and a few others!! I probably would never have gone in the first place but they also kept me going at about 2.25 - 2.5 when I wanted to quit. The last .5 felt great. Yeah for friends that run. We need to do this more often.
My favorite line of the evening? "Now Nancy, is that LIPSTICK you are wearing?" :D
