races

katiegirlchasesinfinity:

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,…

I am planning to run the chocolate 15k! Tumblr meet-up?

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…

Where’s My Snow Day?!

Chicago Public Schools stays open and asks parents to use their own discretion.

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.

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!

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

"
