We hope you had a Merry Christmas and received everything that was on your list. Mother Nature gave us 73 degrees, partly cloudy and calm winds, so I gave myself a 10 mile run (5 times around the Cypress Crossing 2 mile loop) at a molasses-like pace of 10:49 and S gave herself a 6 mile run and a swollen tendon, all in preparation for the Maui Half Marathon that lurks on the horizon.
For us, that makes almost 20 miles of running this week: Mon 4 miles, Tues 3 miles, Wed 4 miles, Thurs, cross-train and then today’s run. We figured that with the wet weather moving in from the SW and the cold weather from the NW, the next few days of running would be iffy.
The Conestoga sits in the driveway, awaiting the winter weather. I thought about driving it West toward Lubbock so we could enjoy the blizzard conditions. But then the thought of calling Good Sam Club after sliding 11,400 GVW of Winnebago off the road and into a ditch… Perhaps, instead a trip to Camping World tomorrow to buy some winterizing fluid.
