I am planning to run the chocolate 15k! Tumblr meet-up?
soooooooooo i haven’t run in a while. not seriously, anyway.
but today i got antsy and momentarily debated rugging up and going for a run in the -40 degree weather. i think this is a sign that i’m finally mentally ready to run again!
sanity ruled, so i started checking out race schedules,…
Why, yes, I am that crazy person who ventured out in -22 degree weather. At least I pulled a Randy (but I could put my arms down), unlike many of the crazies who I saw who weren’t even wearing hats (!!!!!!!!).
Confession time: I cannot for the life of me be productive at home. I had some grading that absolutely had to get done, and I do my best work in the morning. Happily, this means I am already out and can go to the gym and then eat Chipotle (yum). It’s going to be a great day!
Aside from that whole -59 degree windchill thing…
I am so thankful that our school system had the good sense to cancel school (and then the governor mandated it, which is a good thing). Gotta keep those kiddos safe!
While there is no snow predicted for Monday, the wind chills are expected to drop to a life-threatening range of 40 to 50 below zero, officials said. The predicted high for Monday, according to Skilling’s forecast, is minus 10.-Chicago Tribune
And my heart will break when I show up at 7:30am and there are kids waiting on the playground because their parents sent them anyway.
Why is the graded pile ALWAYS smaller than the to-be-graded pile?
I do not use the word home lightly.
So when I sigh it into the crook of your neck,
Believe that your spine is a timber frame,
Your kiss a welcome mat,
And your enveloping arms my front door"
