Like, really cold.
We had a surprisingly large group for our run this morning, especially considering there was ice and snow on the trails.
I forgot to start my Garmin before we started moving, so it took until about 2.25 miles in for it to find me. Fortunately, we run the same trails every Saturday, so I was able to estimate the distance/pace based on what time we left and what time my Garmin started.
This is how I felt for most of the run:
I'm not used to the cold weather yet.
6.6(ish) miles at around a 9:07 pace. Not bad for all the ice dodging we were doing!
It's after Thanksgiving, so that means it's time to get the Christmas decorations out (those are the rules)! Tom was less excited, as this meant he had to carry heavy things up and down the basement stairs. Well, he didn't have to, but I don't think he wanted to watch how I move the heavy things up and down the stairs...I did it last year and didn't die or break anything. :)
Part of the beauty of our decorations is that there aren't very many of them. We pretty much do the tree and call it good. But I love having the tree up. It just makes me happy!
There are still a few branches I need to fluff up a little better, but I'm pretty happy with it.
Do you have your tree up yet?
Real tree or fake tree?
-We always used to go out and cut our Christmas tree down, and I love the smell of real trees, but I have to say, the convenience of an artificial tree is pretty awesome - the lights are already on it! Plus, it takes all year to get rid of all the pine needles that fall off of real trees.
