Well I suppose I can't say I didn't see this one coming! You knew winter was there waiting to strike...waiting for what? I don't know. Should be fun to hear the 40mph winds and 50-60mph wind gusts tonight...ahh winter. I'm ready though. I've got my ingredients for chicken chili and a batch of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Oh yes, it is not a true winter storm until you bake/cook...at least in my family:) I'm kind of excited...an excuse to bum around!
I got my 10 mile run in today since tomorrow looks like it may be ok in the afternoon but not 10 mile weather. I truly am a metronome....I wanted to do this run at a relatively easy pace since this is more of a "get the miles in" run than anything else. Sempre Libera and pink monkey joined me for the run. The first Central Park loop we did at a 8:48 pace....and it truly was that pace as I don't think we slowed/sped up. We followed that up with the bridal path (2.5 mile variety) at 8:46min/mile and the reservoir to finish things up at 8:33min/mile (deceiving since its really flat and you tend to speed up without really knowing it). All in all came out to 1:28:32 or an 8:46min/mile.
Just put the chili on and what do I see outside? The snow has begun to fall! Bring it on! 8-12 inches....fun! And what is it about watching the weather when the snow falls? It's ridiculous...it's not like we haven't seen snow before:-p My favorite portion is when they have the mandatory snow plow shot...ahh winter is here!
