I Hate Cold Weather
It is so darn cold outside. I really hate winter and today is convincing me even more that I can not live in Massachusetts forever. I took the kids swimming at the gym today. They loved it. Mommy froze in the water. It was great fun. Then we went to lunch where I continued to shiver. I ran home and it took 10 minutes in a hot shower for my pads of my feet to no longer be numb. And I am supposed to run a 5K tomorrow outside. I have been so hesitant to run outside since Honolulu....I was just too spoiled. But I promised my sister I would run the race with her, so I will just put on a layer or 2 or 5. I am also pretty nervous about this race. I haven't done a 5K since last March. Since then I have ran 3 marathons. Yeah, that makes a whole lot of sense. My strategy for running a marathon is all set in my mind, a 5K not so much. I am nervous about what pace I should go out at. We will see!
