Greetings from Minnesota. Typical January cold has settled in, and it was -10 when we left for the farm this morning.
The interesting thing about chilly winter days is they tend to be clear, bright, and sunny. When it’s cloudy and overcast it seems like that provides “insulation” aganist the cold, but when it’s so sunny your eyes sting, that’s when the real cold comes.
It looked pretty nice this morning, but don’t let that fool you! It’s 10 below and lots of layers are required.
During this chilly weather my youngest nephew had his first birthday. All my sisters, plus both sets of grandparents and even great grandparents arrived at my sister and brother-in-law’s house to celebrate. After some awesome food and quality family time we were ready for cake.
This little guy definitely knew how to enjoy his first birthday cake 🙂
On Saturday morning I was up early – like 5 am early – and I didn’t really want to wait around for it to get light. The below zero weather also didn’t sound very appealing.
I headed to the gym and made it through 7 miles on the treadmill. My hamstring was really tight for some reason so I stopped every 2 miles or so to stretch it out, but it was still a confidence-boosting run. My longest of 2011 so far and hopefully a good prelude for longer runs to come.
I’m struggling to come up with a question for today, so feel free to make a random comment or share a fun fact about yourself. Have a great Sunday!
